Tanka: Carvings

tanka poem by Xenia Tran paired with an image of a whippet in a winter jacket walking across outcrops at low tide
two whippets in winter jackets by outcrops and rock pools

snow melts
in half the time
it takes to fall
we skip across the outcrops
carved by tide and wind

Wishing you all a happy Monday and a wonderful new week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. Have a happy week Xenia! We still have a few feet of snow here. But the temps are going just above freezing so it will start to melt. Then we will have the season of mud! But Spring will not be far behind!
