Tanka: Halo Around the Sun

halo around the sun with a whippet in the dunes in the foreground
a black and white whippet in a winter jacket running through the dunes

the seamless flow
in letting go
when frost that starts at night
melts when the sun rises

The halo around the sun in the header image was caused by ice crystals high in the atmosphere.

We will be back tomorrow with a special Review of the Year as we are preparing our countdown to 2022.

Wishing you all a happy Thursday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
