Haibun: Taste Of Spring


two whippets playing in winter jackets seen through leafless branches


Through leafless trees we see a tiny silhouette, a tilted head, a glint in the eye of one who is watching. The sand feels soft and deep where the loch retreats. We are grateful for a break between the snows of this long Winter.

  1. Lovely images, a moment of happiness, a moment without snow and when the snow is back, it’s once again happiness, after the break, before the arrival of the spring 🐾 πŸ’–
