seals surrender
to warmth of the rising sun
leaving Spring
to swim in the river
string her pearls in the sea

  1. Wow, Xenia, your tanka is a beauty! I love the image of Spring stringing her pearls in the sea and you’ve reminded me I have to go to Horsey Beach to visit the seals again. ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

  2. Am I the only person who had to do a retake on the first picture to see the seals? They looked like rocks to me at first. LOL Maybe I need to get my eyes checked. Lovely pictures and tanka. You do have great places for the whippets to explore and play.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. When you are not used to seeing multi-coloured seals this way you may need a retake ;o) We are so blessed here with places to walk, it is great for the humans too :o) We wish you a wonderful weekend and much love to you and Tippy xxx
