Magpie #202

La Jument, off the coast of Brittany

Ghosts of Drummond Castle

Strong current pulls
Sweeps drowning souls forever circled
By violent water

Gripping and rather touching...

That is such an interesting picture. Scary as heck, that water would have waves surrounding a structure though. I wouldn't want to be there.

Well expressed, succinct and on target! X
