An Unexpected Visit
by Barbara Gurry/rowell
Unexpected, she was waiting for me when I arrived at my studio. Her sweetness and soft pastel hues made me smile. Hurry, I thought to myself she will fly aware, but she stayed waiting with patience while I gathered my pen and paper. To my surprise this sometimes annoying bird radiated a gentle and sweet calm. My hurry turned to tranquility as I finished her portrait. I thanked her as she raised her wings and flew into the vast blue sky.
