Haibun: Northern Breeze

Most of the forecast rain blows over and we take a chance to head for the coast. Misty sniffs the marram grass, already turning gold in places. We navigate our way through the dunes, following a trail of boot and paw prints. Side by side we pause where the light bursts through the clouds, showing us a glimpse of blue.

  1. Those clouds seem the very definition of a “brooding sky,” yet there’s a beauty to them, too. How I wish the coast were closer so I could follow boot and paw prints through the dunes to the sea… It’s always a pleasure to visit your world here, Xenia. I hope you and Misty are doing well. πŸ™‚
