Tanka: Pilgrims

a black whippet leaping through a tidal pool towards the camera

new steps
every pilgrimage
a season
grateful that our souls should meet
the radiance of love

We are celebrating Eivor’s Gotcha Day today and are so grateful we found each other in this life. Thank you for all the love and for helping us see the world through your eyes.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
