WOW!!! A story told in just 3 lines. As a young child. My mom was cleaning my bird cage outside and let my bird go. I do not know why she was cleaning it outside. I do not think inside birds can make it in the wild. Have a great/blessed autumn day writing away......................

Funny how the sound fills the room. The cage looks like a harp. With burning commitment, perhaps signifying the canaries desire to sing herself out of imprisonment. Nice work, Anne-Lise!
