Tanka: Holding Light

a black whippet walking on a sandbar beside a tidal lagoon
a blue and white whippet walking through a tidal lagoon

holding light
the way it happens
when a heart opens
in this new, quiet landscape
where angels can be heard

We are staying positive for the dogs and they are a great help in filling us with hope for the future.

We hope you all stay well and healthy and wish you a peaceful Thursday and a beautiful rest of the week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

      1. Hehe the
        Here Are too
        For Corona it
        Seems but
        Not Really
        i Still Remember
        The January of
        β€˜Flu’ Or β€˜Corona’
        Where i Coughed
        Up Blood As Many
        People And Tourists
        Who High-Fived
        Me When i
        Public Danced
        Around This
        Place Surely
        Made me a
        Candidate As
        β€˜Typhoid Fred’
        An Immunity
        Test for many
        Will no Doubt
        Be Surprising
        Stay Well Dear
        Xenia FRiEnD
        All You LoVE Free❀️
