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
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.
The Cairngorms used to be called Am Monadh Ruadh or Russet Coloured Mountain Range. We love walking in the National Park out of season. The ancient pine are self-seeding and some of the trees are a thousand years old. The streams running from the hills are crystal clear. The water seems as pure today, as it has always been.
