Life and Death

I saw my first two robins of the season as I walked in the quiet morning with Max.  They were in a tree, a male and female. I uttered, “Hello and welcome.”  The sun was already warming the world…frosted windshields were covered in a veil of moisture upon my return to the house.

I looked around the corner of the house, expecting the two busy sparrows of last week to be diving in and out and about their nest…others, at the feeder.  Looking down at the ground below…a darkened form…closer…two.  Two tiny headless bodies, only inches from one another.  Sadness washed over me. I said, “Good-bye.”

Another poignant reminder…all of life is to be cherished.
