Villanelle: An Unhatched Egg

An unhatched egg. Abandoned in a nest;
a symbol of sorrow and lost potential,
no longer warmed by a mother’s plumed breast.

A forgotten treasure, trapped in a chest;
experiencing beauty is essential.
An unhatched egg, abandoned in a nest.

A good idea, in which no-one invests;
can those without power be influential,
no longer warmed by a mother’s plumed breast?

An uncaught criminal evading arrest;
public knowledge, kept confidential,
An unhatched egg, abandoned in a nest;

secretive sins which are never confessed
and pride, my sin, is preferential.
An unhatched egg, abandoned in a nest
no longer warmed by a mother’s plumed breast.
