From above I am but a dot.

A shadow cast upon the beach.

Stretching as the sun sets.

In the ever expanding universe, a speck of humanity.

Yet here on Earth, I am.

I stand, toes in the sand and I am.

Soft warm waves caressing my legs.

They beckon me to enter the cleat blue waters, and I am.

The footsteps of strangers surround me and in my solitude, I am.

I watch as their presence is erased by the rippling tide.

Footsteps in the sand.

They were too.


Be well, Stay safe.
