South Carolina, USA
I held my breath against the moment,
quivering, somewhat motionless...
anticipating, waiting, wondering if...
The beat of a trembling heart pressing
against ears that heard only a slight
sigh beyond the thunderous roar of
crimson waters flowing ravenously down
into the depths. Deep, clear waters...
running slow...carrying truth and
honesty....ambition and inhibition..
a twinkle of an eye searching the
smooth tender skin of one who would
now become a cherished jewel...
