To all of you wonderful people: I am off to the beach for a vacation, which feels very welcome right about now. Since it is purely relaxation and reading (of course) and writing (again, of course), there is a good chance that you might hear from me during my holiday. I hope to at least read some of your blogs while testing my sunblock.
In the meantime, stay safe and well and read and/or write something delicious! I leave you with a ditty about a dragon at the beach.
Buff the Sinewy Dragon
Buff the sinewy dragon lived by the sea
he was the most muscular creature
you’d ever want to see
He liked to sun himself on the beach
collect seashells and horseshoe crabs
anything in reach.
One day threatened a hurricane
with fierce winds and raging sea
that drove Buff plain insane
For this was his afternoon off
when he could just lie in the sand
dunking his dragon toes in a sea trough
So Buff gathered all his might
And blew a fiery wind toward the clouds
achieving quite a height
The hurricane did evaporate
as water mixed with fire tends to do
for Buff, time alas to ruminate
and maybe have a barbecue.
