Islets of Fantasy

Coral-Island-Marshal-HD-1024x576

There was an islet that rose, out of the ocean.

Due to rising of coral rock from the ocean bed.

There was a lot of erosion that occurred from the sea blast, wind velocity, and rain.

It took the shape of two hands, in a petition mode as a supplication honoring God.

Due to the erosion, the soil could only grow saline plants, such as coconut trees.

The bridge was built from coconut tree trunks.

The shack was built from sawn coconut trunk and tree leaves.

There was a man on the bridge, intoning that a few people live on the islet.

A rope ladder was built, to climb from the boat in the ocean to the bridge between the

islets.

It was a slight cloudy day.
