Times challenge - a Lifetime - "My Bonnie lies over the ocean..." : Kortirion

Title: “My Bonnie lies over the ocean... ”
Author: Kortirion
Character: Lady Finduilas
Rating: G
Source: Appendices LotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s legendarium, Kortirion’s addition

The wind from the west tossed her unbound hair; roaring up the Anduin from the sea, driving white sails to the Harlond, it danced across billowing crops on the Pelennor, before whirling upwards to the Citadel crowning the stones of Minas Tirith, bringing salt-dampened memories of surf and sands.

She inhaled deeply... before admitting to herself that she smelt only river-mud and mown hay, not dunes and sea-wrack. She sighed. His hand slipped around her waist.

“Come beloved, we have a lifetime together to look forward to – the sea will wait for you.”

And wait it did... never letting go.
