The blind goes up.
Blinking.
Blinking.
Coming into focus.
The harbour is so flat.
Glassy.
Orange and red leaves from the other side
Reflected so perfectly.
Idyllic.
Serene.
Looking right.
Further.
The sun shining off of the lighthouse.
So bright.
Looks almost Photoshopped.
But, it’s not.
Or a camera trick.
But, it’s not.
Looking further right.
Open ocean.
Seas are choppier.
A little.
There is one wave.
Bigger.
Whiter.
Angrier.
Longitudinal and transverse motions fighting.
For control.
So close to the mouth of the harbour.
Too close.
Moving.
Threatening to come in.
Closer.
Closer.

Just missing entering the harbour.
The calm remains.
For now.

    Loved those lines! (I just realized that this could imply that I just read the beginning and the end, but I promise I read the entire thing!) ;)

    Half-assed? Are you SERIOUS? That was beautiful. I don’t even want to see you give your all – I’d probably go blind.

    each: Thanks. Definitely not showing off. If not for NaBloPoMo, this sucker likely would have joined the ten million other pieces of paper piled up in my bedroom.

    hope: The middle of stories is all filler anyway!

    wendy: Thanks so much!
