Haiku: Catching Footprints

a smiling blue and white whippet leaping across tidal sands and a black whippet sniffing the seaweed by the rocks
a black whippet leaping across tidal sands, seaweed and rocks

sheer joy
catching your footprints
in the air

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Becca and for hosting this lovely challenge 🙂💜 Haiku can capture a special moment in so few words and they’re a wonderful way for us to enjoy these moments again, often with a deeper understanding. Haiku come alive when others read them and respond to them and I hope you will get back to writing haiku when you’re ready 🤗💖 xxx
