A few years ago, Marilyn Hamecher entered a “Funky Nests in Funky Places” challenge and I won.  It was her poem “Osprey”. Since then she has writing many of poems about birds.  

Ospreys Funky Nest Poem 

Alma Osprey built her funky nest upon the drawbridge sign.

All who crossed could see her but she didn’t seem to mind.

She starred at bright signals of the red and green lights. 

While bridge crossers gazed up at this incredulous sight.

Her feathers blew upward from the wind, noisy and strong.

And her offspring and mate knew… it’s where they belong.
