Memories are like pebbles in the stream of time.

Sending bark-boats down the river during golden summer-days...him spinning tales of whirlwinds and landings on distant shores...Boromir listening with enjoyment...while half pretending not to.

Another boat down the river...wounds that time will never heal.

He is a ruthless memory-keeper.

For solace he has also spun untold tales about that boat - Boromir remaining...and dreaming in a cocoon of slow time across the sea...

Faramir puts two bark-boats on the water and lights a candle in each. He watches as they float away, like fiery petals.
One for Boromir and one...for himself.
