A Face in the Crowd

(Play the audio track and relax, while imagining yourself hovering high above the surf.)


With the sun breaking out over Singer Island…

sunrise (2)

another day dawns on the Florida coastline,

and the beach quickly comes alive.

Walkers dodge the ebb and flow of lapping water

perpetually pushing against the shoreline.

And the miniature movements of anonymity

are measured against a seascape

captured twenty-one floors above sea level,

where a face in the crowd seamlessly blurs into obscurity.

Singer Island

Hypnotic waves enchant two silhouettes of solitude beside a roiling sea,

surf and turf

while the lure of a lounge chair beckons to a lonesome beachcomber.

In time, a passage over and beyond the dunes…

bridge over the dune

extends to a passage of twisted tranquility.

  1. I wish we could like individual photos within the post. That picture of the two people standing in the waves…I could look at that for hours.
