Tanka: Nature’s Light

Cairngorms National Park

a black whippet walking on sun-lit forest trail between pine and heather

from afar this light
finds her way through the trees
over and over
we pause in silence
breathing the spring air

scots pine and douglas fir with sunlight beaming through

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. This is so very lovely! Am just returned from international travel for work (and some family stuff) and it was fantastic to have left NYC with bare trees and green shoots struggling to find light, and to return to trees heavy with bloom and carpets of green grass everywhere. Spring is an absolute time of miracles! Fantastic photos!

      1. Thank you, my friend. I am glad to be back (jetlagged and exhausted and all), and it was an important, if complex, trip. I might’ve flown right over you at some point yesterday late afternoon … πŸ˜‰
