Tanka: What Travels with Us

hopes and dreams
the warmth in your voice
travels with us
where the river meets the sea
older seals are barking

  1. Wonderful words and photos as always, Xenia. I recall the seals and sea lions along the Oregon Coast. For someone who was born and raised far from the ocean, it was a magical experience to see these creatures in their natural setting. This tanka brings back good memories. Enjoy your rest-of-the-week! πŸ™‚
