Sijo: Wings Of Fur

lr-1080504 ww

sea air and silt stir the surge to lurch into the speed of bliss
your feet kiss the sand in circles where each grain tells a story –
all I can hear is the song in your eyes, the spark in your smile

  2. Full of whippet energy, Xenia, and I can smell the sea air! I love the phrase ‘speed of bliss’ and the way it rhymes with ‘kiss’. The image illustrates it beautifully! Was that photo taken yesterday? It was sunny here too. This morning it’s pouring, the washing is dripping on the line and I have to go to the library for bounce and rhyme. Have a great middle of the week! xx
