Undwindled Dawn

Sunrise coffee on my fire escape: the gentlest of breezes ruffling my feathers, the rosiest of light pinking up my plans. Even timid Grace steals by my side to inspect the splendor and mischief outside our window. I’m smiling, still living inside this sculpture I saw on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Such a sweet embrace.
