This is the final day of a month-long series of writing prompts created by Discover. A very big thank you to Ben Huberman and the team for their inspiration and stepping in during these extraordinary times. It’s been a real pleasure to participate with so many creative bloggers.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday and may you all stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. Uplifting poem, Xenia. Sometimes good things come out of nowhere when you least expect it. Eivor and Pearl seem to be having a good time on the beach. Hope you are doing well and take care πŸ’•πŸ˜Š

  2. Lovely pictures and Haiku, as always. I do wonder what circumstances “planted” that piece of driftwood. It just doesn’t seem possible from a simply tide. Anyway, one of my favorite finds on the beach is driftwood. I love to see how the water has shaped it and smoothed out all of the rough spots.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Vicky, it’s lovely to see how the water smoothes and brightens the wood. It looks as if someone lifted this driftwood tree and planted it upright with the sand drifts steadying it in place. Enjoy your weekend and please give Tippy a big pat from us all πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx
