Tanka: Circles

tanka poem by Xenia Tran with two whippets in spring wetlands
a smiling whippet in a black jacket walking across dry grass

ah the smell
of gorse blooming
here in the wetlands
the circle of seasons
continues to bring us peace

Β© Xenia Tran

the first gorse in bloom for the season

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

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  2. There is something calming and peaceful in the fact that nature continues in her endless circle. I had to look up the gorse shrub. I had never heard of it before. It’s very pretty and a sure sign of spring. I love your description of the smell that you gave to Laurie. It must be heavenly.
