A Cardinal Experience

cardinal in flight

Cardinal
From the latin cardo
Which means hinge

A curious link
From my high school studies
To both of our college mascots

Cardinals serve
As a doorway connecting
Earth and spirit

Your birth
A Cardinal Experience
In my life

Your momentous self
A link between
Past and future
