This is such a cool offering for this contest, MoonGirl -- so full of encouragement yet offering a smile to go with that 'egging forward'... ;) :) Thanx for sharing and best of luck in the contest! ;) Yvette

    Thank you Yvette. This poem came to me thinking about my grandson who is off and on his own now. Seems like yesterday he was only four years old. Only three more in their parent's nest. Not sure where all those years went but now I'm on to a new chapter. Thank you for the stars too. :)

Nicely done for this contest. "spread those little wings" - try a new type of poem - don't be afraid to send out your work - try line dancing (afraid I cannot do that any longer, arthritis is here) - so many things we pass by cuz we think we can't.

    Isn't THAT the truth! I've always wondered when I stopped knowing I could do cartwheels, when I no longer wanted to snow ski, when no longer had any interest in rollerblading or when I couldn't do flips on the trampoline anymore. Not sure when it happened but I definitely knew that I couldn't do these things anymore. Thanks for the review and the stars. :)

You have made excellent use of all of your syllables in this lovely, exuberant piece about the time when the young leave the nest or
home, as the case may be.

    I remember being so excited to move out of my parents home and be on my own. That was like the beginning of helping me move past my fear that held me frozen in place. Thank you for the reveiw and the stars.

Do like your premise for this Haiku post. Your selected FanArt picture is a good companion to your verse.

As the poet in control of your capitalization and punctuation, you have total control. IMHO, you can eliminate most for this contest entry and it will no detract from your FS posting.

This is a short and sweet poem that fulfills the meter as outlined in the contest. The picture was a good choice to complement it. "Fly" was a good word to start out with.

I love the message of this. This is the way we succeed in anything we do in life. Keep pressing, keep flying, keep going. Don't look down or back, look up, or straight ahead. You've said quite a bit considering the limited syllable count. I like it and enjoyed reading this well written work. Great job and well done! Good luck in the contest.

I would say birds must be terribly brave to push their young ones out of the nest--but then again, for them flying is as natural as breathing. Yes, fledgling, soar high!

    yes this must be true but I also think it's true for parents of children. No matter how difficult, it's important for them to move away from their parents and learn to fly on their own. Thanks for the review and the stars. :)

I like your poem. Yes, when it is time to soar, we must look only up, never down. The graphic you chose to complement your poem is very nice. Good job, and good luck in the contest.

That is such an important message. We should always strive to reach a time where in the midst of it all we can rise above it a soar into a new beginning or even the culmination of a soaring ending to some project or event. It is hard to create a meaningful message with so few words, but you have done it. The picture you chose is a compliment to your words.

Is this the moment those birds migrate? They don't look down an they soar into the sky to warmer climes? I enjoyed your words of freedom here, a beautiful presentation, love Dolly x
