after the fall...

by human being

illustrations by rhoda penmarq








the window had fallen in love with the imprisoned bird... all day long he watched her hopping around the bare room...







she crowed every now and then... and stared into his eyes for hours... at these times their eyes shone in a very strange way...







each day the window felt the bird is sitting closer to him... now he could see his own reflection in her black eyes...
and at last... one day... something happened...








the window opened his arms wide... waiting for the bird... she paused for a moment...  opened her wings as wide as she could... and soared into his embrace...
