Antarctic Fur Seal – In Complete Silence

In Complete Silence

     Waves crashed and the turbid surf churned while racing to shore.  Far up the island’s escarpment, glacial melt coalesced and a babbling stream meandered toward the strident strand.  Before attaining its seaside goal, the rill joined others of its kind and took a dramatic drop falling as a gloriously talkative cascade.

     In the loud landscape, amidst a sea of tussock grass, a blond-phased Antarctic Fur Seal [a blondie] waited in complete silence.
