A Turn of a Phrase

(a story in phrases)

A girl

A boy

A lovely summer’s sunset

Red clouds in the west

Cooling breeze

The path by the lake

Holding hands

Sharing secrets

Star struck eyes

A place to sit

Contemplation of shimmering water

A stone skipping three times

A shared look

A feeble attempt at humor

Shock and disgust

A stammering apology

A head turned in rebuke

Talk of reason

Storming off

Attempt to follow

A rock heaved at the lake

Ripples everywhere
