Friday 8/20/10 - "SANCTUARY" - FFF55



FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55




"SANCTUARY"


She was searching for "sanctuary", silence, serenity.


After weeks she arrived at the seacoast driving the winding roads along the ocean cliffs.


It was late. She was tired, but felt the urge to stop.


Walking a narrow dirt path she suddenly saw silhouetted against the vanishing day, her "sanctuary".


The lighthouse was vacant, unlocked, hers.

"...The lighthouse was vacant, unlocked, hers." That is your best line...GooooD!

And also hers then, was serenity and silence.

Many, many wish for times like this in their lives....
Love.

Wow, I love this.

When I was younger, I used to dream of living in a lighthouse, there was always something so darn *romantic* about them...

I have a huge print (okay, it's from Ikea...!) of a lighthouse photo on my bedroom wall. Maybe my sanctuary?

Fabulous 55, PG!

You know, after reading this again several times, I can see that persistence pays also a dividend:

"It was late. She was tired, but felt the urge to stop."

IOW, follow the urge to stop--or go.

Simply beautiful. I've got a soft spot in my heart for lighthouses. Yes, sanctuary.

How beautiful! I would so love to find such a sanctuary. Isolated and safe from the rest of the world.
