Sunday Stills

We are deeply honoured that the lovely Anne Leueen from Horse Addict is featuring a haiku from Between Heather and Grass with a photograph of her beautiful and soulful horse, Biasini, today. Thank you so much for this wonderful post dear Anne xxx

HorseAddict

I did not take this photo. It was taken by my friend Carmen (Queca) Franco at a clinic with Janet Foy last week. I think it is a beautiful photo of my Biasini. The words below the photo are not mine either! They are by Xenia Tran and her book of poems “Between the Heather and Grass:” You can find her poetry and photo posts at Whippet Wisdom.

Heavenly music

part of us remembers

the angel’s harp

Xenia Tran

I believe Biasini can hear that music.

mountain stream
a pause to drink the water
composed of crystals
the images left behind
of wolves who drank here too

a dog leaps
onto a bank of shingle
every stone
polished by what it lived through
the stories that it holds

on colder days
the curdled white in blue skies
offers a world
to cherish beside the fire
close to dunes and marram grass
