Haibun: New Dimensions

a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket walking over stones and shingle above the river
a black whippet in a winter jacket sniffing the stones on the riverbank

The eastern bank is stacked with stones, smoothed by journeys through ice and water. Sitting down with a pebble in my hand, I close my eyes and feel the pulse of the mountain, a deeper dimension of where we all come from.

heading north –
the wind on the river
brushes the trees

  1. Such peaceful words and images (as always). I love stones that have been shaped and smoothed by water–there’s such a sense of antiquity to them, whether they’re river stones or those found on an ocean shore. Fascinating. And I wonder what Eivor and Pearl were checking out on the beach? Your posts always brighten my day, Xenia. πŸ™‚

  2. Those smoothed stones. Where have the come from? Far away? Nearby? Rolling and being smoothed over the years. Nice that you picked one up and let it speak to you. Have a happy and healthy week Xenia.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Anne πŸ’œ Many of these stones have come from further upstream and they each have something special to say. Wishing you a happy and healthy week too and please give sweet Biasini a big pat from us all πŸ€—πŸ§‘πŸ΄ xxx
