as society celebrates surface artifice
masking ugliness beneath painted smiles
pure hearts sculpted in gargoylesque form wither
whilst awaiting their chance to fly
This week’s Monochrome Monday is the third of my series on the ornaments that are around the house I share with my sister. I’ve had this little gargoyle for a long time, but, as with many of my belongings, it was in storage for many years until I moved into our new place last year. I’d actually forgotten what I had in many of the boxes – including him! It’s nice to have him back out on display again.
I hope you like the pictures.
