Exhilaration

Dog playing on the beach in San Agustinillo, Mexico – Jan 2021
 Exhilaration
  
 Oh, the way the dogs
 tumble over the sand like
 rocks freed from the mountainside
 rolling, rolling, rolling
 until
 too tired to keep going
 then
 stopping to feel the exertion
 and the exhilaration of exhaustion 

This was the first in a series of poems I wrote while on holiday in San Agustinillo, Mexico last month. I love the freedom of the dogs there. (And, how over the past 16 years, the dogs have become healthy and well cared for.) They are a source of daily inspiration (and energy!). I’ve included a couple of bonus photos of the 2 dogs who hung out with Jim and I at our posada. This poem is part of an online collection I call Little Morsels of Delight.
