Tanka: Stone Spirits

a blue and white whippet carefully stepping across shingle and rocks on a tidal beach

precious earth –
each stone its own
aura
our souls so closely aligned
with all that we see

  1. Wonderful poetry, Xenia. I love the line, ‘each stone its own…aura’. That’s so true. Every stone on earth is unique. Wonderful photos. Hope you are well and wishing you a wonderful week ahead ❀😊🐾
