Once again we enjoy - Tess Kincaid's photo prompt for
Lake Ediza - California
Photography by- Edward Henry Weston
Once upon a romance, long ago there was a photographer and he met a lovely, young lady....
Sitting, Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Tired- but eloquent just the same.
A brief nine years before she went
away for places beyond.
Perhaps these knee-high laced up boots
here she sits one lost, lone survivor.
Wandering silent figures-
moving blindly into whatever lay beyond
his adulterous affairs.
Was it shame?
Or skill in just another sensual game
that they always shared?
What drove her naked body up and down
Her warm sweet breath cascading over him
rolling across the hot sands
of their days spent
Her very first sight of him
He being the most alive person in one room
capturing every one's attention -
He- the one man, whose eyes saw
twice as much as anyone else saw.
She sits in his shadow of life and womb
her eyes close.
Her thoughts that day lay still
her soul- almost alien
her yearning heart - his selfish endeavours
are to blame
for their demise.
She embarks upon a voyage of love
with lips trembling
to her heart-
was his no more.
The year she met Weston.
