Outdoor Café

A pigeon takes one dainty step onto a slatted table of golden wood.  Bits of granola and French bread make an ordinary breakfast, but on a nearby table, that pastry box is the color of cinnamon, and it must be full of something wondrous.

A brief glide, landing on a nearby chair, gazing at the woman sitting there.  Jerking its head to the side, asking “You gonna eat that?”

  1. I love this. It says so much in so few words and the last part really makes me smile. I can imagine that comical expression… I’m impressed by your ability to make such a common little scrounger sound quite beautiful. :)
