Wordless Wednesday

Rag Tag Daily Prompt: Adventure

Puente Poetry: Reading the World

the day opens a new book
of sights, scents and sounds
for the eternally curious
canines we adopted

~ or is it the other way around? ~

who is walking who on any
given day when we take turns
to guide and follow a spark
that bounces from the stars?

wolf dog –
when clouds speak of rain

Haibun: Table-top Rock

Summer is in full swing and tourists bring a bit of buzz to the beach. There are kites in the air and paddle boarders on the water. Wild-swimmers wade through the shallows with orange inflatables. We slip away to where nature makes the only sound. The gentle lapping of waves, the chant of oystercatchers piping.

northeast wind –
marram grass waves
