This old tree once shaded a desert island. But that was long ago. Now, against the elements, its bleached and weatherworn branches reach up into a tropical summer sky.
If these old pilings could speak, what stories they could tell of heartache and joy, of storms and calm, and endless sunrises like this one.
There was already some tension when they first got away. Now with the seas building and night coming, the pressure is mounting, but the end is in sight. But who is this suddenly showing up on the horizon behind them?
