I go to the mountain side of the house to cut saplings,

and clear a view to snow on the mountain.

But when I look up, saw in hand, I see a nest clutched in the uppermost branches.

I don't cut that one.

I don't cut the others either.

Suddenly, in every tree, an unseen nest where a mountain would be.
