Tanka: Autumn Glories

Cairngorms National Park

a brindle whippet in a yellow jacket beside a birch tree on the loch shore
a brindle whippet in a yellow jacket walking between pine and birch trees in the forest

leafless birch
a sense of home folded
in dappled light
we look up at the trees
across the rippled water

  1. At last I am here, in your beautiful blog world dear Xenia! This is where meets with nature, creatures and humans… human’s good and nice thoughts… Especially I love this, loving life, earth and other creatures and talking through the Haiku touches… I don’t want to disturb your beautiful world in here, but we live unbelieve worst and tragic events in my country. As if people lost their mental health… The stories about dogs and cats so scary. Makes me crying… I want to shout to my people aloud, “there is people like Xenia in this world, none of them are alone we live with earth and nature and with other creatures too… ” Thank you dear, sorry for dropping my sadly touching voice… I love you and your world. Love and Hugs, nia

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Nia and so lovely to see you again walking along with us here. It is very sad to hear and see what is happening in the world and I am grateful there are so many kind people who are doing good to help others, help animals and help restore and protect the natural beauty around us. Keep the faith dear Nia, you and your lovely new neighbours are doing so much too for all the animals. Wishing you a blessed day and much love back from our house to yours πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸˆ xxx
