Home Birds

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.
