Eggshells

Tiny pebbles
Aimed at ripen fruits
Scattered eggshells

Scattered eggshells
Perished possibilities, loss
Irreparable

 --xx---o---xx--

Eagerly breaking shells
For yummy chocolate muffins
Fun family ritual

    1. Thank you so much Ma'am. We all have plucked juicy fruits from the trees by pelting stones on them. Who cares about nests and eggs in those days!!!
