{Forgotten} a Visual Dare Prompt

She stood still as the overgrown yellow grass brushed past the backs of her bare legs. She stared sorrowfully at the remains of the wreckage. At some point someone had replaced the fence, resolutely it stood against the backdrop of the rusted out truck lingering within its boundary.

For years she had searched for him, finally finding the ugly truth lying here in this vast field of nothing, engulfed by brittle yellow grass.

In death as in life, he had found only solitude and she wept quietly for a loss of life that had shone so bright for such brief moments.

Linking up with Angela and her Visual Dare this week after taking some time out to rest my writing hand. I must say I am happy to return to writing daily again!

Heartbreaking and solid, with the new fence as a jarring line of how life has pushed on when she could not. Beautifully wrought piece!
