Puente Poetry: All About the Light

two whippets running side by side through the dunes

a storm is silently approaching
where the crows whirl in the sky
an old man smiles behind his gate,
points across the bay and says

~ it is all about the light ~

and we love to run towards it
even on the darkest, wettest days
there are cracks in passing clouds
where smaller rays can shine

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

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. Dear Xenia, you expressed so beautifully in this poem, how nice these words, “it is all about the light”… both physically and spiritually too… and as always photographs hitting, I loved the colours and contrast. Thank you, Love, nia

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Nia, nature has a wonderful way of showing us where the light is and this can guide us in our spiritual path too. Sending love from the Highlands and wishing you a peaceful week ahead πŸ’œπŸ’« xxx

  2. I was drawn in to your description of “… cracks in passing clouds,” and had to look outside to see if we had any. Alas! Our Madison Valley is so filled with the smoke coming from MT, ID, CO, CA and OR fires that we can’t see the clouds – if there ARE any up above that haze.Pray for more rain!
