Haibun: Hills of Gold

Cairngorms National Park

Deep in the day’s turnings the light changes to gold. A pair of wild-campers set up an indigo tent, gathering stones for a fire. When we return to the loch all the new seems familiar.

fresh dreams
in the moon’s cycle
a cuckoo calls

  1. Xenia, the photographs are so beautiful! I love ‘Deep in the day’s turnings the light changes to gold’ – you’ve recreated the atmosphere you captured in the photos. And I still haven’t heard a cuckoo this year. πŸ™‚
