Tanka: Song of the Sea

two whippets in winter jackets running across the beach
a common limpet part buried in the tidal sands

between
past and future
a lone limpet
its bright shell sings
a song of the sea

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike, there was something very humbling about the lone limpet in the sand and staying in that moment. It is a pleasure to share the magic of nature we encounter with you and we wish you a blessed weekend ahead πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ
