He could hear the sound of water

echoing through the walls of his shell.

He remembered other sounds

but couldn’t hear them now.

The soft, muffled movements

of his siblings faded away,

and his world grew cold.

Pecking at the wall of his shell,

Was it time to escape?

Try as he might, his feeble pecks

did not release him from his prison.

The sound of water grew louder,

and he felt movement. Time passed,

and there was silence in his world.

Warmth returned, and he pecked again.

Too weak to continue, there was a loud crack.

The broken shell fell away,

he saw his family for the first time.

Bright eyes and soft feathers

welcomed him, and he sighed,

Grateful to be alive and happy…
