Being But Human
"This week, I would like you to write about a time when you last watched stars, a storm, the sea, an animal, or something else in nature that left you with a sense of wonder or awe."
With a day of freakishly warm November weather, it seemed
to be a possible last day to stroll along the boardwalk,
and absorb the ocean.
Air seemed fresh, clear, and invigorating after
being cooped up. Suddenly a chill wind blew
down from a charcoal sky. I watched the ripples
of water gain speed, turn darker. No matter,
I was enthralled.

pauses–alert, both paws clutch
