Tanka: Sincere Light


We are walking through the forest to shelter from the arctic wind. Light rain and wet snow soften the earth and give the golden leaves some extra sparkle.

Sincere light
guides the snow
where mist
and cloud embrace
the sleeping mountain.

It has been a while since we included a music video and today we heard a few people singing this song and thought it would be nice to include an old clip where the original band perform it live. The song is called ‘Chi Mi’n Geamhradh’ (I see Winter) and it is performed by Runrig, a band originally from the Isle of Skye.

With love,
