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.

  2. What well-dressed whippets 🙂 Erin is getting her winter fur through now..it’s very thick and woolly, hope that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a cold winter…

    1. Thank you Samantha!☺ Erin will be well protected with such thick and wooly winter fur. It feels very cold here just now with a strong arctic wind. Hope you will all stay warm and have a lovely weekend ☺💖 xxx

    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 🐾🐾
