Tanka: Blankets of Mist

a black whippet in a winter jacket running on the beach with a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket
two whippets in winter jackets playing on the beach in thick fog

tails wagging
like banners of love
the cold moon
spreads blankets of mist
all around the island

  1. Lovely Tanks and photos. I like the thought of wagging tails being banners of love. I’ve been MIA for a while. Life sort of got in the way. I’ve missed seeing your action photos. Pearl and Eivor always look like they are having so much fun! It does my heart good.

      1. Aww. Thank you. All is well. I’ve just been extra busy. I substitute at a local daycare. I agreed to be basically full time for one of the teachers who went on maternity leave. Well, before she was scheduled to come back, she decided to quit. Then, the other teacher in that class quit too, so I wound up working nearly every day for 3 or 4 months. I’m hoping to be able to slow down a little bit. (Even though I do miss those 4 and 5 year olds….and they miss me too. I go in to see them when I am subbing in other classes and they want to know when I’ll be back. πŸ™‚ )
