Tanka: Soaring Spirit

Tanka poem by Xenia Tran paired with a close up of middle aged black whippet in a black jacket on the beach
close up of a black whippet in a black jacket on the beach looking into the distance

above the hills
and the gulls that hover
in limitless blue
there’s a space we call home
that lives inside us too

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

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. SMiLes Dear Xenia
    What We We Will Be Sure
    Of Is In The Mind Of A Dog
    There Is No Distance, Space, Time,
    Or Matter Separating God Like the

    Rest of Nature

    too Only

    Humans

    Create An

    Illusion of Separation
    Distance, Space, Time
    And Matter Separating God
    Such A Beautiful Planet to Enjoy
    Heaven Sadly Lost Humans Create
    An illusion of Separation Feeling Alone Now

    It’s Really No Surprise to me at all of What Dog
    Spells for Real in Reverse Or Any Other Part of Nature Whole..:)
