Tanka: Giving Thanks

tanka poem by Xenia Tran with a portrait of a whippet on the beach
a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket on the beach

wild sea –
our ears nearly blow away
in the wind
we give thanks for this life
and our spirit’s journey

Wishing you all a happy Thursday, and happy Thanksgiving to our friends in America, and a peaceful rest of the week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
