Delusion and Hope

Hidden amongst the basalt columns I prayed for egress. The tide had swept me away as our little ship trembled in the storm. Shivering with fear and cold my senses eluded any possibility of existence as I sat cursing my surroundings.

Eventually, hope rose among the laid down environment as the rescue team descended. I felt relieved as they saved me from the clasp of the isolated land unaware that, columns played guardian to my soul as my men fought with death in the rough tides.

The green and the grey thus gave a new colour to my life forever and nature took my side while we beat the Fear.
