Empty Shell

how deep and hollow is an empty shell found amongst the distant dunes no home for sand nor wave ~*~

    I guess everyone afore me has already said all that I could; in particular how one is drawn to read this over several times each time conjuring up something ever subtly different in the image you have cleverly painted in these three lines with a sundry of layers. Mystifying!

    Annalise, I kept wrapping my brain around this one and found intersting thoughts and interpretations hidden below the empty, forlorn premise and imagery. You did a great job here. Thank you for supporting my contest and congratulations on your win! Merry Christmas and blessings towards a prosperous New Year!

    It leaves you with an empty feeling of sadness. Poor animal that once inhabited that shell!

    Oh, it's the shell I feel the most for, Andrea...that little fella's gone back to enrich mother earth, but the shell is quite useless out there. See what I mean? I don't know if this will do at all for the contest as I've only done one or two...Either way, I tried. lol Love, Annalise

    Enjoyed the emphasis on motion sorrounded by the desert; sand waves.. Highlighting hollows / hollowness..) set in the depths of existence Annalise...(hope i have got some of this "write" ha ha..) all the best to you this Christmass and coming year..)
