Haiku: Cosmic Flow

a wolf still trusts the moon
to move the sea

  1. God, Xenia, this is an amazing post. I am aware of how much forgiveness is about trusting in love …. e.g., “Who will I be if I’m not judging?” (LOVE) and “Will I be held if I let go?” (YES!!) And I love this photo that you paired your haiku with – is that Elvor or Pearl, Xenia?

    You’re giving me inspiration for my blog tomorrow – thank you!
    Lots of love and Light to you…. will feature this tomorrow.

    1. Thank you Kim, Pearl was determined to brace the wind and watch the waves from the top while we were walking on lower, more sheltered sands. It is still windy today and sunny – I hope the weather is good where you are too and wish you all a wonderful weekend! 🤗🐕💖 xxx

  3. Your beautiful poems, whatever format, and your pictures of nature are always comforting. I am smiling when I picture Dylan (with his short legs) trying to keep up with Eivor and Pearl 🙂
