Tanka: Seaside Meditation

the day hesitates
in pockets
of lace and seaweed
the light is always there

  1. “Lace and seaweed…” Gorgeous description! And that seaweed photograph is stunning. It reminds me of my time spent along the Oregon Coast, walking those rugged beaches. This is a wonderful piece of writing/photography. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike and so lovely to hear it brings back memories from your walks on the rugged beaches along the Oregon Coast. There’s always something new on the beach and it was lovely to see the light reflected in the sea lace before the sun broke through 😊
