Vacant Birdhouse

I used this image to inspire a poem I posted back in October and have used the original poem as a springboard into Imagism.

  Birdhouse

The vacancy

Of a weather-bleached birdhouse

Hanging low

From the gnarled branch

Of an aged apple tree

Is more surprising

Considering

The warmth

Of a moss-covered roof
