Tanka: Guests and Geese

two whippets in black jackets on top of a hill
a blue and white whippet on a rock in the forest

dogs in coats
colours on the hill change
at their own pace
guests and geese begin
to travel home

    1. Thank you kindly dear Mary and a happy Autumn to you too! πŸ€—πŸ§‘πŸ‚ The geese who fly over come from Iceland, Greenland and sometimes Canada and head further south towards England and parts of Ireland. Some, especially Brent Geese, stay in Scotland too.

  1. Hello Pearl and Eivor and Xenia! I see that coats are being worn for your outing. Same here. Ma Leueen and I went for a walk in the forest today with a friend and I had on my quarter sheet that keeps my hind end warmer. I have had my fur clipped so I need blankets and such to keep me warmer. The geese! Yes we have those here and they are flying around getting themselves organized for their trip south. I am not going south this winter because of the Vye Rus. But Ma Leueen has got lots of warm blankets for me to wear. Have a good week all of you from all of us here.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words sweet Biasini and lovely to hear Ma Leueen is keeping you warm with quarter sheets and blankets. You can have a cosy Winter at home this year and maybe discover some new trails that are easy in the snow. A wonderful new week to you, Ma Leueen, David and June from all of us here πŸ€—πŸ§‘πŸŽ xxx
