Tanka: Sea Lace

sea lace
the first step
so small
nobody knew
the size of the ocean

  2. It looks as though the sea has welcomed Misty with open arms. I love the first image and how you used a shallow depth-of-field to allow Misty to really stand out. She’s a gorgeous whippet. Your tanka touched me deeply. Your talent with words and images astounds me every time you post. There’s so much beauty in this world, and you help us see and experience it. (I’m a big fan!) πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend, Xenia and Misty. Much love from Colorado. πŸ™‚

  3. I love the images suggested by ‘Sea Lace’ – reminds me of the childhood thrill of those first steps into rippling waves at the edge of the sea. πŸ™‚
    Lovely to see Misty making new discoveries in her new home; did she live near the sea before? ❀ ❀ xxx
