The Night Watch by Rhoufi


Available to buy on…

they’d been good …snugged
Together like cats,
Absorbed in waves, lights, each other.
in pain, she vowed
Never again…to return to this spot.

- a poem by Sassafras written urgently from feelings evoked by my photo, and kindly left here as a gift.
Thank you dear Sass, you know your words are always welcome in my gallery.

  • breathing in the scent, wanting something to happen, and to be there… moments later a guy turned up and tried to chat her up… they never learn. Merci madame, tu comprends l’ambiance, d’accord :-)

    lovely work Rhoufi. I can just imagine her face – with a deep and pensive expression, thoughts drifting away to different times and realms.
