Wingless

“The shadow cast her heaviness. A wall becomes the place to stop. It is the place where wingless dreams have gone to fade away into the comfort of a windless night.”

••I love this stone gargoyle. She has been on guard in my yard for many years. Maybe she guards me from the open sky? It’s ironic to carve a winged creature in stone. How can she possibly fly? I found the shadow she cast on the wall this evening ironic. Maybe it is symbolic of the inability to fly?••
