Haiku: Trust

two whippets walking on a sun-lit forest trail
a blue and white whippet looking up at the trees on a forest trail

forest trail
the dogs meet and part
with their shadows

A later variation of this haiku was published in haikuKATHA Issue 11, September 2022 and features in our October 2022 post Meet and Part.

Wishing you all a happy Monday and a blessed new week ahead,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Liesbet. Eivor was afraid of shadows when we first adopted him and now he trusts them for what they are. Hope you are keeping safe and well too and please give Maya a big pat from us all πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx

  1. I really like this poem. It makes me think that Eivor and Pearl are playing with each other, and playing with each other’s shadows too. Looked like a nice sunny day in the woods. Hope you are well πŸ™‚
