Tanka: Arctic Breeze

one whippet on top of a rock and another whippet below on the beach

enlightenment
at all angles the arctic
scent passes
of glaciers and polar bears
who share our history too

I have been enjoying fellow photographer Jez Braithwaite’s creative images with his new lensball and decided to have a little play.

Wishing you a blessed Spring Equinox if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere and a happy Autumn Equinox to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere. May you all stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
