Dream Eggs

Well I never!
Does that mean the chap in


STUDY OF NEST
(Magpie 111)

managed to lay an egg after all?
Several eggs?
Flying eggs?
And all of them with pretty chicks inside
ready to pop out and populate his dream island?


Ah no,
thought not,
he looks as if the effort of building his nest
has tired him out and he's nodded off.

He's dreaming.

  13. A coincidence -- I checked two of my favorite blogs this morning and they both had that egg image at the top. Yours and Dick Jones Patteran Pages.
