Tanka: Peace Within

a blue and white whippet on a forest trail in autumn
two whippets walking side by side on a forest trail

peace within
the hymn of each waterfall
in the forest
we wish you the same soothing
that nature brings us here

Thank you for all your good wishes before we went on our blogging break and we hope you all had a good week too.

This poem is for Kristjaan (Chèvrefeuille) at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and all those in need of peace within.

Wishing you a happy Monday and a peaceful week ahead,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
