Tanka: Simple Pleasures

a smiling blue and white whippet walking on the beach with a black whippet playing with a ball in the background
a blue and white whippet running with a ball on the beach

simple pleasures
paw prints in the sand
dance around us
with those we love and lost
and their message from the clouds

  1. What a wonderful tanka…and such thoughtful imagery. And the photo of the feather and the paw print is exquisite. Beautiful verse and image as always, Xenia. Enjoy your weekend! πŸ™‚
