Haibun: Bathing in Light

Portrait of a mature black whippet lit by the sun on the beach

We’re on our way again. On our way to new discoveries, new dreams. The sun warms the sea after a cold night. Mist rises, a haze of blue. A haze of peace over a calm sea. That’s how we’d love the world to be.

together we find ourselves
bathing in light

We wish you all a very peaceful Monday and a wonderful new week.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
