Aurore et les mouettes

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Every time I pass the Square Georges Cain at night, I hear seagulls singing. And every time, it makes me stop and think how far the sea is from here. And every time, I stop walking and look at this girl standing in the roses, shining like she’s made of glass.

Tonight, for the first time, I looked at the plaque and saw that her name is Aurora and she is made of bronze.

Aurore, a XVIIe century bronze by Laurent Magnier, in the roses of the Square Georges Cain. Paris.
