mindful writing, day 3 sparrows

yesterday, on my way to meet a friend for coffee

I drove past a bare tree, branches filled with sparrows, maybe, maybe not actually sparrows, as i am not a birder

but filled with sparrows and one tangle of a nest

and I laughed

feast or famine, I wondered

am I looking at abundance or insufficiency?

and wondered

what armload of sparrows am I holding

while staring at a single nest, knowing it is not enough
