Tanka: Tenderness

hoarfrost
the light searches
for souvenirs
near seaweed and shaded sands
where thin ice lingers

  1. The frost is lovely. I like the colors of Eivor and Pearl’s coats and best wishes to you Xenia for a happy and peaceful weekend. We are back in lockdown again but this time owners of horses can go to the stables to look after and ride their horses. I am grateful for that!
