Tanka: Sunburst

two whippets walking through the forest towards the sea
two whippets walking towards the beach at high tide

forest edge
tall shadows meander
towards the sea
peace can guide us home again
as the sun bursts through the trees

  2. The epitome of peaceful contemplation has got to be sun-dappled forest floors (and it certainly helps if there are a couple of dogs exploring those woods). I love the sunburst effect in the third image, the spotlight effect in the second image, and the feeling of the dogs leading the way out of the forest to the sea in the first image. How I wish I could get out and do more photography… Your verse is beautiful as always, and something I look forward to. Enjoy your rest-of-the-week, Xenia, and give my best regards to Eivor and Pearl. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike and Eivor and Pearl say thank you for your best wishes too πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ The third photograph was taken from the beach below the woods. When I looked back up at where we had just come from, I saw the sun beaming through the trees and slowed down the shutter speed to capture the rays. Enjoy the rest of your week and I hope you’ll get a chance to go out and take some photographs too! 🌞
