hen nest

The hens made a nest on top of the highest hay bale in the barn.  It’s been there long enough for two eggs to freeze and two eggs to be still fresh.  Finding it, on the eve of a snowstorm,  was like seeing the first crocus of spring.  I tossed the frozen eggs into the pasture and broke the fresh eggs on the ground for the hens to eat, and thanked them.
