Winter wind blows the last russet leaf from the redbud, revealing, in the vein of branches, two tiny nests from the spring before that still hold tight with moss and mud, each smaller than an open palm, offering a cup of circling seasons. A rounded nest, a cracked bowl, a wooden spoon, a cupped hand, an open palm; each and all hold the sustenance I seek. Overflowing; possessing nothing.
