Taking a Walk With a Sea Lion
A sea lion followed me this morning.
Or maybe I followed him.
We traveled parallel paths,
him playing in the waves,
me dipping my toes in the surf.
We moved together for half a mile,
I first saw him lying in the sand,
ahead of me,
as if maybe he was waiting.
As I got closer,
he scooched back into the ocean,
where he belonged.
I'm also scooching home,
back where I belong.
But, first, I'll take a walk with a sea lion.
