The river stood like a shadow watching them
rise with the sun of passion
and the horse gallops 
now fade
into a thick mound of trees 
Calista turned
to swallow the wind
with a thinning hope 
gathering her pearl white gown
like beads into a hand
she gaped,
a shiny water mirror
an icon of the past
a moment
where love rivered through the air
where breaths sang
when she opened like
a lotus  soft as skin
and passion bloomed
where ripples shimmer 
to whispers
where tears run deep
and anger waits coiled
with fear
where she felt more like his slave
 than his princess.

    How sad that she felt "more like his slave than his princess." A very creative interpretation of the photo, Rushda. Calista is a beautiful name. Wishing you success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
