This morning I watched two cardinals out my window, one so bright to show it's might, one a little browner, I'm sure not to be a downer. Each chose his branch with grace, the bright one won the race, to be up higher. He fluttered and muttered about. The brown one, still and inactive. Once the other finally settled, a conversation, I'm sure they had, their narration not long, as the bright one quickly moved on.
