The Lady of Shalott.

The Lady of Shalott    Dark clouds bringing a biting cold breeze, not quite a wind… yet. It was enough to tangle her hair and make her feel untidy. She walked along the edge of the stream and watched the ripples created by the breeze and the branches overhanging, allowing their shadows to bleed into […]
