100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups #33




I'm back. Writing again. I have missed it. 
This is the latest 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups.

Piece by piece, the sea offered up parts smoothed by its own white horses.  Each limb carved by sand, shell and wave.  She gathered them with love. She wired and wove. She created joints for shoulders, fetlock and cannon as limber as a racehorse.  She chose with care, intertwining, creating curves with care and precision.  A proud head took shape, noble and inquisitive. She gave her creation a jauntily turned leg, imagined movement, where there was none. 
At last it stood.
A most wonderful sculpture.  
A gift to the world, gathered from the ocean.
A  creature for the new Eden.
