Admiring the two miniature bronze lovebirds perched upon the cabinet. Ones I presented to my husband on Valentine's Day last year. Contemplating the third tiny bird nestled in-between. Resting upon a leaf. Slightly smaller than the others but similar in style and colouring. Placed there last March. Receiving this sympathy gift days after the accident. A shopkeeper in our neighbourhood impulsively picking it up off a shelf. Then handing it to a family friend to pass on to us. Unaware that there were already two birds awaiting it at home. Such an exquisite moment of synchronicity.
