3 words – 11/14 – Iconic

She stood on the dock;

her straight hair becoming

tangled in the wind.

Normally serene,

the lake had swollen with

the recent downpour.

With each wave crashing

against the rocks lining

the shore, concern grew.

Behind her the house

was lit waiting to bid

welcome to the crew.

She pulled her sweater

tight against the night chill,

clutching her hands near

her sad, troubled heart.

She was the iconic

woman at the shore

waiting for the man she

loved – missing at sea.
