Walk With Me.

Come on take a walk with me. There’s no time to waste for I want to show you something kind of magical.

No, no, it’s really not that far. Along this path and out of the woods. But then we must go carefully, quietly, or they will take flight, the sight.

What? Who? I’m not going to say. You’ll just have to wait and see.

Now we need to head on over towards the sea, but no, not too fast now. If we get too close they will disappear.

Hit the ground and crawl up to the top of this rise. Quietly, quietly.

And look!

Horses of the sea and air. Spreading their wings, these magical, mythical beasts.

Have you ever seen anything quite so magnificent?

This makes me think of waves crashing on a seashore. That's probably not what you intended, but that was the image I conjured up from your words. Horses of the sea - but perhaps not of the air.

Ah, but they had wings, Joe, so maybe a bit of both. Thanks so much for taking the time to both read and comment.

I need to go back to writing about things other than death again, I guess. Thanks, Sharief.
