Tanka: Buck Moon

a black and white whippet leaping across the tidal sands with a ball
portrait of a black and white whippet on the beach with a yellow ball

enlightenment
rubs off a little
from the buck moon
even when she rolls away
the sea and sand shimmer

      1. Nostalgia is
        Evidence of
        Living A Soulful Life
        That Truly Breathes Touch
        Once We Are Able to Touch
        Life We Tend to Hug Life More
        Sadly this is a Missing Light for
        Many Yet to Fully See Breath Smile
        Happy Sunday SMiLeS Touching
        Hugging Life Dear Xenia With
        Dog SMiLES For Breathing EaseπŸ€—β£οΈ
