a cardinal landed on a sculpture in my garden,
made from an old engine block.
made by an old friend
who credited it with saving her life –
so she melted it
and poured it into a clay mold she had carved.
both were born anew.
she however is gone.
not from a car crash – from more insidious internal crashes.
we are all mortal after all.
This week is one of those weeks where we have more car accidents than any other –
(day light savings time and spring break)
but still i am reminded of salvation
every day i see her sculpture.
