Haiku: Aureate

new beginnings
the sun tips her healing warmth
on autumn’s gold

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear friend 🧑 We walk outside through the whole year and have thermal base-layers and extra warm coats for when it gets colder. Dogs need daily exercise in the fresh air for their health and wellbeing and it’s very healthy for the humans too! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ•

  2. I like that phrase, ‘autumn’s gold’. Autumn is one of the most colourful seasons with golden-coloured leaves. It is nice you are getting out and about for walks and enjoying quiet nature during these times in the world. Hope all is well πŸ™‚

  3. I realise now how much I have missed your beautiful photos, engaging poetry and escapades of the pups Xenia. In our lockdown there have been many adoptions of dogs and purchases of pups, almost an epidemic within the epidemic.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Denis and so good to see you again! There has been an increase in adoptions here too, which is great news for dogs who had been waiting in shelters for their forever loving home πŸ€—πŸ’œπŸ•
