Tanka: Comfort

close up of two whippets running across tidal sands

sea air –
in illness and in health
this comfort
soon carries beyond the blue
of sky and misty mountains

small delights into
the day’s air

two whippets in winter jackets on the beach, one of them chasing a ball

a present
in the gull’s eyes
that looks older than today
even when it’s younger
