Haiku: Twilight

mountains cloaked
in twilight’s pink and gold
a new wisdom

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Tracy πŸ’œ So happy to hear the book has arrived and how lovely that it brings back memories too from when your husband lived in Scotland as a boy – did he spend in the Highlands when he lived here? πŸ™‚πŸž xxx

      1. His family lived in Edinburgh, Xenia, but they used to do a lot of road trips on the weekends. Many of their Scots friends thought this rather strange but Aussies have always loved their car trips. He visited the Highlands many times. This was in the early 80’s. They visited Eilean Donan several times and apparently never saw a soul in the carpark. πŸ™‚

      2. How wonderful! We lived in Edinburgh in the eighties too and visited the Highlands several times before returning to London for a while. So nice to see your husband and his family got to enjoy Eilean Donan Castle when it was quiet too. It is very crowded these days! πŸ™‚πŸ’– xxx
