Haibun: Spring Me Blue


blue whippet and bluebells on mountain trail


It is colder today and on the slopes of Creag Meagaidh it is colder still. The season has a different rhythm here with a gentle beauty of her own. The light is bright between the showers. Young leaves shimmer in the breeze while clouds curl above the corrie.

spring flows
her own trail in these mountains
bluebells catch the wind

    1. Thank you Judith, we had your weather here two days ago and it flew by pretty fast. Now we have sunny spells between showers and a lot less wind. Hopefully it will brighten up quickly where you are too! :o) xxx

    1. Thank you Judith, it was so lovely to see and smell the bluebells up here. The picnic table was a new addition to this wonderful walk and a fabulous place to stop and open our flask of tea :o) xxx
