Happy Mother's Day -- Six Sentence Sunday From Kary





Happy Mother's Day!

Here is a little bit of magic from my current WIP -- The Pirate Princess. Marchant, the commander of the armies of Komissa and renowned cadabout, has protected Brislyn, the spirited daughter of the Duke her whole life. During a celebration in honor of Brislyn's 19th birthday, March searches for the missing girl and finds more than he believed he could.


As March descended the path to the beach, the lively celebrations dimmed in favor of the whispering tide. As he suspected, the girl sat alone on a rock admiring the beauty of the sunset.
Finding her safe, he moved to return to the party -- and the earl’s daughter -- but stopped short. Bris began to play her lyre and sing; his feet sank in the sand. The lilt of her charming voice reverberated through him as if he had been deaf to music, to beauty, to love until that moment.




Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment. You can find more great postings here.

The final sentence is a hauntingly beautiful description of the difference in our perception when love finally finds us. Lovely six, Kary.

These six from Pirate Princess were always some of my favorite lines! I love how his feet sink in the sand--a sort of grounding to display the reality of the moment.
