The Silhouette 

Big River beach. Mendocino Aug 2016 ©

Are you real or is it your shadow
Silhouetted by the Big River beach?
I called your name only to hear
My voice echoing in the air

I searched for you on Facebook
Among piles of lavish meals
Flashy faces and vacations
Fragments of news and personalities

On Instagram I dug thru
Countless pictures of self-portraits
Surreal landscapes and beautiful animals
Street artworks and fashion fixes

No traces of you anywhere…

I listened to the soothing sea breeze
And heard the harmonic rhythm of my heartbeat
I realized you’ve been there for me
Materialized, kind-hearted, and vibrant
The whole time
