In the Wind from the Sea

Black clouds scud menacingly across Ithilien’s dark sky. The south-westerly gale whips trees into frenzy, branches lashing like the tails of angry cats. High in an oak, pale hair streaming in the wind, a lone figure rides the storm:

Imagine clinging to a great ship’s rigging thus; salt spray in your face, timbers heaving beneath you... The pain of longing, sharp in his chest.

"Are you staying up there all night, Elf?" comes a gruff cry from below. "Or are you joining this poor Dwarf for fire and supper?" Startled back to himself, he sighs with relief.

“Coming, Gimli!”
