Tanka: With Love From Heaven




moon will be full
with tenderness
loving souls who slipped away
reaching out from heaven.

  1. Thank you for those beautiful words, Xenia :’) Brought a tear to my eye as I remembered my own dogs who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge ❀ ❀ So lovely to see the joy in the first photo and the gorgeous faces in the second one. Much love to you all xxx

    1. Thank you for your kind words Cathy. The #walkwithwalnut on Saturday made me think of Seamus and Ruby in particular. With the super moon appearing in the sky tonight I keep seeing this image of Walnut, Seamus, Ruby and so many other loved souls reaching out and sending their love to those they have left behind. We hope you can see the moon tonight and send much love to you and Finn xxx
