Tanka: After the Storm

two fallen birch trees, side by side in the forest
a black whippet in a raincoat climbing a forest trail

rain softens earth
where trees are falling
side by side
we walk through changing forests
learning how to grow

    1. Thank you kindly dear Cathy, around half a dozen birch trees had come down and the older pine and beech were thankfully still standing. The worst of the weather seems to have passed now. Hope you are all safe and dry and Happy Monday to you too from all of us here πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx

    1. Thank you kindly dear Laurie, it was a lucky escape for some visitors – a tree landed on their campervan whilst they went for a hike. Locals were quick to offer help and temporary accommodation πŸ’š
