Beauty on the Side of the Road

Waiting for the traffic light to turn green, I turned my head to see a pair of birds on the side of the road. Not black birds scrounging for roadkill remains, but delicate, bright yellow birds with a splash of black draped across their backs like a shawl. Chatting back and forth in animated bird speak among the rusted metal cans and debris, who would think you’d find such beauty on the side of the road?
