Moon gazing

Fearing what lurked in the whispering Marram grass, I bounded up the stairs two at a time. I reached the upper deck of our vacation rental and saw the second-to-last green on the back nine bathed in beige moonlight.

Turning to pull back the sliding-glass door, I recoiled at the unexpected sight of my grandfather resting in one of the Adirondack chairs.

Recovering my seven-year-old senses of courage and pride, I asked, “Whadareyoudoin’ out here, grampa?”

"Moon gazing," he said.
