Another summer moment

She came wandering up the beach, leaped over the logs and onto the boardwalk (startling the dog, who began barking furiously), then stepped out into the field to nibble delicately at the rose bushes, the rosemary, and finally the Golden Chain. 

She spent quite a bit of time enjoying the lower branches of the Golden Chain, then settled into the tall grasses for a post-prandial nap, glowing lightly in the soft cloud-filtered rays of the morning sun.

Nearby, as Rumi says,

"The ocean sits in the sand,
letting its lap fill with pearls and shells,
then empty."

Lovely: another peaceful summer moment.
