Tanka: Festive Memories

a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket on a forest trail

melting snow
a twinkle of light
in every tree
memories of seasons past
we shared in distant places

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Cathy, it’s not looking likely here either with the snows melting away πŸ’› Wishing you a blessed evening too and much love from our house to yours πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ• xxx


  1. Gorgeous photos and poetry. Scotland is on my very short list of places I’d like to visit. I have Scottish ancestry on my mother’s side, and my older sister has traced these roots back a few generations and also discovered some distant relatives living over there now. Your photography is so intriguing to me for this reason. I’m so glad you include it with your marvelous poetry! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike and how lovely you have distant relatives and roots here! So many people with Scottish roots who visit Scotland for the first time say they feel that a part of them is coming home. I hope you will get a chance to visit the places where your ancestors lived one day too 😊
