Roses Month Day 14: Rose Bush
Every morning and late afternoon the past week I ask Eloise, “did you check the nest?” There, in the kitchen window ledge of our apartment, a pigeon has laid two eggs. It’s such a delight how slowly Eloise approaches the window to not scare the mama and her little coos melt my heart when she catches a glimpse of the eggs. The anticipation of the babies around the house is electric. It’s so silly, it’s just pigeons, but it’s also totally incredible… watching life begin, continue, watching quietly behind glass.
