Haibun: Into the Future

There’s frost in the reeds this morning, a thin layer of ice on the puddles and ponds. The purity of the air brightens our eyes and fills our hearts with hope for the future.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Cathy and yes, Eivor was watching out for Pearl 😉💜 The weather is still unsettled with sunny spells and sleet showers, although the winds are not as strong today. Hope the weather has improved where you are as well and a wonderful rest of the day to you too 🤗💖🐕 xxx
