the Lady Cypress threw back her head and laughed

as her beau, the ocean, roared along with her

at his own salty joke

and the sea breezes rippled through her hair

while smoke from her cigarette drifted toward the sky

and painted it

(On our trip up the coast last year, I was fascinated at how the Cypress trees grow at an angle away from the ocean)

Have a great weekend!

  7. Yes that has always fascinated me too..some of the Cypress here have limbs growing at 90 degree angles. Most mysterious! and great photo/journalism by the way

  11. I love the story you wove through her flowing locks.
    It just goes to show you that there is constant wind at the ocean—up this way too. but I LOVE it. MB
