Anew

.
.

She stands in darkness atop a hill with the wind in her face, her hair streaming behind her. She glances over her shoulder and watches as another year blows away taking with it unhappy memories and shattered emotions.
As the angry black clouds scurry out of sight the moon appears spreading a silver blanket of hope all around and casting her long grey shadow behind her.
Suddenly all is calm. She looks toward the future. Another year approaches, another chance to start her life anew

  9. This is an interesting piece. Brief, with great word choice. I kind of wanted a horror story (but then again, I think I always kind of want a horror story), but it's very fitting for the New Year.

    Well done, and thank you for sharing it with the world! :)

  11. Strange! When I awakened this morning, the wind was blowing and the vision which you've written whistled through my view. How beautifully you portrayed that flash!
    Happy 2010!

  15. Did the words inspired the photo or did the photo inspired the words? i love this piece. it's simple but you can just imagine being at that same moment as the character.

  20. Nice one, Keith. The start of something longer, maybe a short story, I would say.
