Wordless Wednesday: Sparkling Sea

two whippets running on tidal sands with scattered stones
white clouds lit up by the sun above the sea and mountains

We are taking a short blogging break and will be back on Monday 4th October.

Wishing you all a sparkling Wednesday and a peaceful week ahead,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Puente Poetry: The Best of Neighbours

two whippets on the beach by a wooden post above the tidal lagoon

the seagulls from our roof
feed in the lace the waves push in,
heavy with crab for growing chicks
who will soon be the size of their parents

~ our quirky friends ~

now the best of neighbours
with tilted head and knowing blink
we head for home as the sand disappears
in a hungry sea that swallows every bar

Wishing you all a happy Monday and a wonderful new week,

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

CFFC: Here Comes the Sun

Haibun: Heritage

We notice how much the sands have drifted, since we last walked here. A small dredger is keeping the channel clear for boats that sail in and out of the bay. Young herring gulls learn to fly, encouraged by their elders, with fresh bars for landing and take-off. We are grateful to be back in this special place. Holding a stone with the light bouncing off, I realise how much we missed it.
