ABC Wednesday - H is for Hair?

H is for Hair?............

abstract seaweed looks like hair

Can you tell if it is hair?
It looks like it - wispy and long.
The color is right - a shade of dark brown.
Tossed to the side as hair tends to do when one is laying down.
It could be hair - an abstract shot of it.
But is it?
Look closely - are there joints on those strands?
Or just a really bad case of split ends?
And what is it laying on?
Not a smooth pillow - it looks rather grainy.
If you have chosen to guess it is seaweed rather than hair, then you would be correct.
The incoming tide rolled it over and over.
The outgoining tide rolled it further still, but left the long strands outstretched in the fine ocean sand - reaching towards the water as it was left behind.
A beautiful abstract created by nature - graceful and fragile beside the sea.

This is the eighth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
