by the river piedra

By arbebuk
By the River Piedra, I sat down and wept. There is a legend that everthing that falls in the water of this river - leaves, insects, the feathers of birds - is transformed into the rocks that make the riverbed. If only I could tear out my heart and hurl it into the current, then my pain and longing would be over, and I could finally forget.
By the River Piedra, I sat down and wept.The winter air chills the tears on my cheeks, and my tears fall into the cold waters that course past me. . Somewhere this river joins another, then another, until - far from my heart and sight - all of them merge with the sea.
May my tears run just as far that my love might never know that one day I cried for him. May my tears run just as far, that I might forget the river piedra, the monastary, the church in the Pyrenees, the mists, and the paths we walked together. I shall forget the roads, the mountains, and the field of dreams - the dreams that will never come true...
I remember my "magic moment" -that instant when a "yes" or a "no" can change one's life forever. It seems so long ago now. It is hard to believe that it was only last week that I had found my love once again, and then lost him...

By The River Piedra by Paolo Coelho

I really really like this picture but there is something about it that turns me away... I am not sure what it is but I think that if there was not vignette on the right side and if the man was much farther to the bottom left it would look better. Just trying to give some constructive criticism =D ;)

The photo is wonderful, not to mention the colors of it, especially the water. I like the clarity of the water; I mean, you can actually see the stones underwater which is very beautiful.

Also, it was nice of you to leave that comment for your photograph. It made it even more beautiful :)
