1. Sunset Gates

Gimli stood on the deck of the westward bearing ship watching as the shore of the new land came into view. A tear welled up in his eye as he saw the Lady ahead, standing tall and proud, her arm raised in greeting. He placed his hand over his heart, where a lovingly crafted silver box held three golden hairs, and smiled a secret smile.

He stepped off the ship; a small figure swallowed up by the crowd, and reflected pensively upon his new home, his final home.

A man sitting behind a desk greeted him. "Welcome to Ellis Island."

An interesting tale that raises more questions than it answers. 

I liked the way you evoked Galadriel yet gave us Lady Liberty.  Will you tell us how Gimli came to the New World with his precious cargo of the Lady's hairs?  I think there's a story there.  :)

Oh, my heavens--that wasn't expected at all!  Thanks for the giggle!  Not exactly the island I was expecting to see!
