Beating into the Night

Passing Clouds-7870

Looking down on the Gulf, I hear the beats of a drum in the shadows of clouds that punctuate the bronzed head of water…some strong and articulate, others faint and indistinct…out of balance, yet rhythmic, as though introducing symmetry would risk silencing the music…a chaotic tune emerges from the light and shadows and soon my head is filled with the soundless beats of jazz that carry me into the night.
