red birds are everywhere

Like a single
ornament,

the red cardinal
on a pine

outside
the window

is our only
decoration,

until
the snow.

A sudden loud noise draws my attention to the back window facing the water. There in the tall barren trees is my red bird. It sits as still as a statue. I smile and whisper my thanks.

Thank you, Lord.
