For years I had a glass blue bird, and a glass red bird, sitting on my kitchen windowsill.
When we moved I either packed them and can’t find them or I gave them to one of the kids.
Today we found out the “other house” is in contract. It’s not going to be ours.
We went on a bike ride.
As I rode the trail back to the new house to meet with the realtor the brightest blue and brightest red I have ever seen caught my eye.
A blue bird and a red bird. Sitting together on the bike trail.
As I rode close they lifted in to the air together and flew away.
I went home.
