Made a journey down a winding road, to see an old friend and a dog named Luna. Near the coast we stayed. We listened to the not so distant waves come and go, in a rhythmic way. The smell of salt was in the air.
The next morning, on a walk at the beach, the tilting fence post glistened in the sun, with sand at its feet. Budding rose bushes, splattered bits of red color upon the dunes. The dynamic sea awaited the hustle and bustle of beachgoers, after Luna and her friends had their play.
In the afternoon, the sun beat down. Children frolicked at the shore with mother and father at their sides, building castles in the sand. They felt unfettered, by the rough canine play, of the early morn.
What did Luna think, as she lay at home sleeping, mid-day? There, she was dreaming of her four-legged pals, from whom she would steal balls and sticks, as they raucously rolled in the sand. Then, swim!
In the hours, when the night had fallen, and twilight awoke, daybreak returned to summon Luna out to play. Alone, she could not go. She rose, wagged her tail, and sniffed and licked the face of my sleepy friend. She was begging to go to the ocean, where she would find her friends again; and so they did.
With every journey, there is something to be learned. On this one, it was knowing a day in the life of Luna, and the simple pleasures it brings.
