767. Dozing Dragon: a calming meditation and kid’s story

Some forest animals come across Dragon having a snooze!

Dozing Dragon Excerpt:

In the wee hours of the morning, all of Ahway Island was calm. Waves gently rolled in on the beach. A soft breeze rustled the leaves on the trees in the animal sanctuary. The town sat quiet and serene with only an occasional vehicle vrooming toward its destination. In the very center of the Enchanted Forest, Dragon snoozed peacefully as sunlight began to peek over the horizon. It was very early morning, and the forest was just beginning to wake up.

As Dragon gently snored, shades of gray and purple sky turned to pink and orange and finally bright white as the brilliant sun emerged, warming the air and evaporating the overnight dew that had accumulated on the leaves of the trees and plants below.
