Ma can we go to the park and play?

Crescent moon today too. But the star has moved to the centre of the crescent. I am late for the dog-walk. Moon goes home. As I step out for the run, I see two young teens, in conversation. The boy holding a small teddy bear with a red heart. Enjoying the togetherness after the school exams, I presume.  As I jog and turn, a young frisky puppy (my friend) with his master sees me and jumps. An energetic and happy ‘Good Morning’. Love that. Smile, nuzzle him, and continue to run. Boys playing cricket in the ground. As I speed up, the batsman lofts the ball, it is a SIX and the ball lands near me. Three circles around the park and then onto a longer stretch on the main road. And then the Sun spots me. He is there in full glory. As I near the turn on the main road, he rushes in through the trees on the road-side, making a beautiful golden arch and embraces me. Energised. 3KMS done. Criss-cross into side streets, over rough jelly stones spread on the road under work. Cross the main road and run on the pavement. 300m of dancing on the uneven granite slab pavement soothes the legs. Greet a cyclist who is racing. Into the tech park and yet another date with the Sun. 7kms done. U-turn with Sun warming my back. Long shadow in front, really long legs. If I could stride with those long legs, I will be faster that a cyclist, wouldn’t that be great?  Two young girls playing badminton on the street. Five dogs sprawled on the street basking in the warm sun. Two young puppies jumping up and down to their mother’s head possibly asking her “Ma can we go to the park and play?”, and the mother screws her head up- Sweet. Two ducks bobbing quietly in the lake. NikePlus announces 10kms done. Another KM and today’s run comes to an end. My fourth consecutive 10km. Nice. 5-Tibetians is soothing. Off to office by bicycle. Another nice morning. Have a great day!
