Tanka: Green Halo

beach day –
the dogs’ noses
covered in sand
the lighthouse waits until dark
to spin her green halo

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Cathy πŸ’š The cold, arctic wind kept the beach quite empty 😁 Hope you are having a peaceful day and much love from our house to yours πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ• xxx

  1. Gorgeous Eivor and Pearl…so expressive. The tanka is wonderful, and the landscape in the final image is so austere and seems like such a still, quiet place (although perhaps breezy?). πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike 😊 It was a cold, windy morning on the beach and fresh snow had fallen on the peaks in the distance, which brings a different kind of peace and quiet. Hope all is well where you are too and wishing you a wonderful weekend πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ
