Tanka: Sweet Music

sweet music
where rain drops meet the flow
of a woodland stream
the way two waters meet
within sight of a mountain

It is six months ago today when we first met Misty and set out on our journey together. And what a blessing she has been and continues to be.

We are very grateful that we found each other and wish you all a happy Monday and a peaceful new week.

With love from Misty and Xenia xxx

  2. As you know, I love Misty. I also love this poem. It evokes my world — and yours so beautifully. I spent an enchanted hour out in mine today, in the wind and under a rapidly changing sky just loving December and feeling grateful for being there with my big white dog. Sometimes a dog and a beautiful spot is all anyone needs. πŸΎπŸ’š
