Ready to Hang

Be like the bird, who / Halting in his flight / On a limb too slight / Feels it give way beneath him, / Yet sings / Knowing he hath wings.
~ Victor Hug.

The words of Victor Hugo can be found nestled in this piece among the scribbles and birds and foliage. These words serve as a reminder of one's strength, courage, and perseverance, and I hope this piece inspires you to take that leap of faith.

Melissa resides in Rochester, NY with her husband, daughter, and collection of vintage bird cages.
