Tanka: Brushed by Moonlight

two whippets walking across a wooden bridge in a spring forest
a blue and white whippet looking between the trees down at the water of the woodland pond

daybreak –
a shimmer on the pond
brushed
by last night’s moon
swans feed in the shallows

  1. The lush forest is like a faerie land…and the dogs appear so at ease among the trees. As always, your verse is so profound in its simplicity and peaceful tone. Honestly, your posts are like a soothing balm. Wonderfully done, Xenia. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Mike. The young leaves and buds are already providing a lot of tree cover and Eivor and Pearl feel so at home in the forest, it’s a real treat to see. We hope the weather is warming up where you are too and we wish you a blessed rest of the week πŸΎπŸ’›πŸΎ
