Tanka: One by One

one by one
they re-appear
sand bars
every day is earth day
for seals who catch the sun

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Annabelle. We’re blessed with a seal colony here and further along the coast too and sometimes they swim into the river to catch a salmon. Hope you’ll get to spot one soon and much love to you and sweet Lyra from us all πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ• xxx
