The Noisy Little Bird  10/22/16

As the morning fog burned away and the sun rose o'er the Eastern ridge, a little bird lit on the upper branches of a nearby tree and began his brief, but loud, declaration.  His musical statement drew the attention of those within hearing who paused to take in his meaning.  He was as the evangelist; a lone voice in the desert calling to all to repent, repent, repent, while a small dog across the valley barked response of "amen, amen, amen".   Even an hour later, the hound continued his proclamation of sorrow for his sins while the bird still sat atop the tree, granting absolution.        --- Dave
