An Unexpected Visit

fullsizerender-2Unexpected,  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.
