Rook on the rocks, a SANDCASTLE

written large & form erroding

shore & folly showing,

blending light & water almost solid.

    I'm burning the midnight oil with this one, Joe. "rook" be the castle and erosion the swindler? I can see the light on water reflection."almost solid". A short write, but took me on a thought spree!! Best wishes, Love, Mikki
