Tanka: Love at First Sight

Loch Laggan

a black whippet in a winter coat gazing out across Loch Laggan
a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket drinking from the loch

one more glance
one more sip
drinking it all in
for love, for poetry
the landscape at first sight

  1. You take the most stunning photos, Xenia! Honestly, I’m in awe of the vistas that you are surrounded with. What a perfect place for your dogs to romp and for you to be inspired with your lovely tanka. It always feels so calming and serene over here.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Gayle. It’s peaceful and quiet in Winter and the dogs love coming here to run and explore. The energy of the land feels very nurturing and it’s a real treat to be here πŸ’— xxx
