PROMPT: Tiny Love

tap-a-tap-tap says the window. curious, i peer out our sliding glass door. A cardinal, its chest puffed out and its red body perched on a chair, taps its beak on our window. all day and all night, a faint tap-a-tap-tap floods throughout the house. My sister says it's because our windows are showing his reflection and he's trying to assert dominance. But i know better. my late great-grandmother, Bestemor (which means grandmother in Norwegian) loved cardinals. This cardinal, red with springtime, tap-a-tap-tap-ing on our window? its her, coming to say hello and check in to make sure we're all okay. 
the cardinal hasn't been back. She must be satisfied.

    Aww, this is wonderful! I like how italicizing the taps helps set them apart from the rest of the text. It really makes it seem as if she's talking<3
