Tanka: Once The Fog Lifts

Cairngorms National Park


black whippet in winter jacket on mountain trail


so smooth
the mirror on the loch
holding the sky
our paw prints on the mountains
in tune with nature’s heart

    1. Thank you for your kind words Cathy, we could see the mountain trails we were hiking earlier so clearly from the loch shore. Eivor kept pausing and looking out over the glen while Pearl was whizzing around. I managed to get a few photographs of her that are not blurry for tomorrow’s post! ;o) xxx

  1. I do like that jacket your beauty is sporting. Eivor’s a fine handsome fellow. He should be a model.
    Your tanka is perfect for your photos. I can’t get over the majestic look of the water and scenery, it looks straight out of a fairytale.

  2. The loch was a mirror. I love that in reading the comments above that you could see where you were hiking earlier. Just completes the thoughts surrounding the Tanka, which is as lovely as your photos.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Vicky ☺ The water on the loch is usually rippled by the wind and it was so beautiful that we could see the trail where we climbed before reflected in the still water β˜ΊπŸ’– xxx
