Tanka: Floating Cloud


small cloud floating between mountains over autumn glen


a small cloud
breaks away to glide over
green and gold
folding untold magic
in every precious moment

We wish you all a Happy Monday and a wonderful new week!

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

        i’ve never seen Real Life Snow on Mountains
        And the First time i Played a Very Realistic Virtual
        Snow Boarding Game on the Computer i felt
        my Ancestors

        Black Forest
        of Germany calling
        back to me.. my FriEnd.. for
        the Biggest (only) Mountains i’ve
        ever seen are those in an Alpine
        Village of Helen Georgia where
        even more my ancestors
        called to me there
        for True too.. i am
        only two Generations
        Removed from the Dover
        Cliffs and Limerick Ireland..
        but it’s true3 i don’t have the
        Patience for Limericks.. hehe.. Thanks.. Xenia..
        With lots of ‘Old World’ Roots that Branch out
        as sometimes in Church i find myself singing with
        an Irish Accent for ‘no reason’ and as i mentioned
        before the Indian Tech
        Support mistakes
        me for
        but hey.. after all is said
        and done LiFE is MaGiC anyWay
