One Single Impression: Silence


From August 7, 2011

Between the great one
And the sun:
Silence and surf, silence and sand

(Somewhere in my myriad summer albums, I have a photo of a great white heron in flight. But I can't find it. This herring gull was as close as I could come after a long search. He is pretty great in his own opinion, I am sure....)

  12. PS: I came back to enjoy this one again. And to join in over at OSI today, I've been rather remiss with prompts lately. I could look at this scene forever!

    A bit like life itself. Once smooth, once heavy like wet sand. Wondering still how to make the decision of what's next.

    Please have a good new week.
