Against The Light

Facing the silent sea, he sits in silhouette against the light of the scarlet sunset. In stillness of stolen gazes, at seagulls taking flight he hums~ geriatric euphony. His languid voice soars like a delicate dandelion~ and finally finds me. 8 July, 2020 1st place STRAND COMPLETELY NEW(6),any form,any theme Contest Judged: 7/8/2020 2:38:00 AM Sponsored by: Brian Strand |
