in the tide
Author's Note: A number of years ago, the West Pier was tragically destroyed by fire. All that remains of this beautiful Victorian structure is a sad rusting skeleton abandoned to the relentess sea.

Sad the pier was lost. Thanks for this snapshot of what remains.

I like being able to stop and focus on each word you offer, vividly painted here. Many times what is left behind can be more emotive than the original structure. Thank you.
