Tanka: Rain


Golden petals
catch a message
from the clouds
refreshing the air
replenishing the soul.

  1. There is a magical sense to the first photo. The road vanishes behind a curtain of leaves guarded by the Ent like trees on the right. Eivor is passing through on the way to greet friends.

    1. Thank you Denis ☺ They have so many smells to explore in the forest and they pace themselves differently on the hiking trails. They often have one big run just for fun and then take it steady 🐾🐾
