Tintagel

Her loving voice is like a dripping tap.
Tip-tap, tap-tip, a dripping tap, he twists
so tight the washer snaps. A break is best,
the sea maybe, perhaps a cup of tea?

He drives past hives that brim with honeyed lives,
a winding road along a smugglers' coast
of coves where lovers surf and tickle toes,
in quest to find the castle climbing high.

He waits alone in line behind a girl
who's dressed in summer frock and sunny smile,
and when the waves start whisp'ring Guinevere,
he laughs, for is he not Sir Lancelot?

Absolutely adore the strong images, the lighthearted shadows of intense moments:

The reference to arthur's birth place(? if I remember correctly) The multimedia inclusion of the water color it's placement in January against the strong summer vibe. I could go on but why bother picking at perfection;-)
