The Night Watch by Rhoufi

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.
