Tanka: Transformation


blue whippet in winter coat leaping from beach to dunes


after the storm
the beach transforms herself
a big leap
will take us to the forest
the sound of temple bells

  1. Sound of temple bells…I love that when used with the forest as background. It makes me think of the sounds of the forest – temple bells. Eivor and Pearl seem to be enjoying themselves! Love to you all, three.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Toni :o) Eivor and Pearl often head into the forest from the beach as if something is calling them – something that resonates deep within, the way a temple bell would with me. Much love to you from all of us here and Happy Holidays! :o) xxx
