Tanka: Scintillating Sea

a blue and white whippet sniffing seaweed on wet tidal sands
a blue and white whippet sniffing seaweed along the shoreline

soothing waves –
rocks feel steady in wet sand
full of energy
we thank the glittering sea
for brighter new beginnings

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Anne 🧑 I was really encouraged by the news emerging from New Zealand, the Netherlands and Germany about the way forward and although we’re a bit behind here there are encouraging signs for the journey ahead πŸ™‚πŸ’– xxx


    1. Thank you dear Laurie, we’ve never seen a cleaner sea or a clearer blue in the sky than what we’re experiencing now. Here’s wishing you better times to come, especially in November πŸ™πŸ’œ xxx
