#434: Solitary

There are a lot of opportunities
for solitude on this island,
even in the summer, 
when our population quintuples.
Fishing the surf.
Early morning, near Sankaty Lighthouse.

Along the wharf,
past artists’ studios,
in the fog.

Walking with a stick
 in the woods.
Even vacationing in Ireland
with your daughter,
solitude can be found.

 Until you turn around 
and face the photographer; 
then poof it’s gone.
