I saw this and thought..no more!!! I can't take it!! its killing me. The screencaps are just...painful. The second one of sam is beautiful..his green eyes are so striking, green, glowing (with tears) and sad, fearful, and showing determined strength. There is a love and maturity in his look that surpasses the Sam before.
Frodo...the angst, indecision, pain is so thick you could slice the air with it. The way his nostrils flare, his eyebrows so tense..such a hard decision..he is so tired. But you know..he is looking directly into Sam's eyes..even though you don't see it directly..it is happening in the angle they give, you know. And Sam is beseaching, demanding, that he not let go.

"my eyes
into the simple
of yours
and saw
the sweet green

This poem of jan-u-wine's does not spark me so much for this part except for certain small passages. There is an intensity in this scene that is so raw. I felt a more "after it all is done" reflection and sublimity in her poem..but parts seemed directly linked to his grasp to live in this moment.

hugs you...xoxo v

I am really pleased with the way the caps for this section turned out, especially in fullscreen, so I thank you, Verangel, and am so pleased you are finding them a rich experience.

As for the poem I posted here, it actually is a retrospective poem, so it is appropriate for you to sense an "after it all is done" mood to it.
