The keepsake

Photobucket

Mother had a wonderful seashell, a treasure brought from Dol Amroth.

Outside its surface was weather-beaten and worn, scarred by time and tide yet still strong and whole.

Within was hidden the most delicate flush of softest rose, and against my ear it whispered a strange, seductive song of longing. Its echoes haunt my dreams to this day.

What became of it I know not – lost long ago, and lost to my memory as well.

But I remembered that shell again the first time I undressed my ranger king.

He is a treasure I do not intend to lose.
