Tanka: Creating Memories

one path after another
the wolf within
mindful of the living trees
the fallen resting in grass

The fallen trees are left here and provide a home for micro-organisms and the rare aspen hoverfly.

  1. Lovely tanka, Xenia. It speaks of exploring the depths of nature, and exploring slow while taking in every bit of beautiful – be it the adventurous spirit within us or the lush green grass. Lovely images too. The fallen trees look like they are making series of steps, gigantic steps in fact. Cozy home for micro-organisms and the hoverfly when they come by. Happy walking amongst nature πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mabel πŸ’œ There is so much to take in and discover when we give ourselves the time to spend in nature, she is so generous of spirit! πŸ™‚πŸŒ³πŸ’–


      1. Hope you get to go out exploring again soon. It’s just so refreshing, and a walk helps me clear my mind when I am thinking about too many things πŸ™‚ Happy walking ❀
