Lovebugs danced through the air, celebrating the eternal embrace of lovers throughout time and beyond. In the distance, a majestic gray Arabian horse munched on grass, her elegant neck bent downward until she became one with the earth. Massive spider webs stretched from tree limbs to the ground, catching unsuspecting insects in their invisible traps. In the early morning, coated with beads of dew, the death traps revealed themselves in beauty and mystery.
It is in this paradise I sit, alone, basking in the magic of my surroundings. The breeze cools my skin. It’s been hot, very hot, for months that seemed to have no end. Even the horses seem happier in the new coolness.
