Haibun: The Season Keeps on Walking

two whippets walking through wetlands in late Summer

Ground-nesting birds have fledged and it is safe to return to the wetlands. The lack of rain in Summer shows itself in scattered leaves and dried out bushes. A hint of gold begins to glitter in the reeds, offering us an early glimpse where Autumn’s cloak will fall.

the pond holds the lines

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Diana πŸ’› We’re heading towards Fall as well (we call it Autumn on our side of the Pond) 🍁 and the colours are changing earlier as we’ve had a very dry Summer. It’s usually a beautiful time of year and I can imagine how lovely it will be for you to see some cooler weather πŸ’™ Wishing you a wonderful week and hugs for you, Chloe and Murphy from all of us here πŸ€—πŸ§‘πŸ΄ xxx

  2. Here, too. All the waterbirds and ground-nesting birds are gone and with them a lot of the bugs that plague us in summer on our walks. It’s an empty moment during with the Sandhill cranes begin to return for a short visit. It will be a few months before the geese return (February) and I will be glad to see them, too. Very beautiful poem and photos. ❀ to you, Eivor and Pearl

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Martha πŸ’— Lovely to hear the sandhill cranes will soon return – such a wonderful treat to see. We’ve seen the first Canada geese head south and it will be a few more months before the Brent geese fly in to roost here for Winter. Much love back to you, Bear and Teddy from all of us here πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx
