And spins me onto the soft grass.
The profusion of harbor activity arouses my
Little white sails on little white boats catch the
As the ferry makes constant progress towards its
I sit up and take stock.
The handsome schooner glides effortlessly around
I imagine my pirate self silently swimming out to the ship.
Like a shark, I circle around then quickly scale her stern.

I open my eyes,
The sun has shifted.
The boats are moored.
The schooner has sailed.
My dog licks my face,
It is time for a walk
In the cool breezes of delight.
