Haiku: Sharing Our Journey

sharing our journey
through the grass

I was at first concerned when I saw the Greylag goose on her own and was later assured by other walkers that a large flock had landed half an hour earlier in the grass behind her.

Wishing you all a happy Thursday and a peaceful rest of the week,

with love from Misty and Xenia xxx

We’re walking through the forest at Easter, the sun is bright and warm. It’s the warmest Easter we’ve known since moving to the Highlands. Eivor walks beside us, touching my hand with his nose to let us know. To let us know, how good it feels to be here.

Pearl walks slightly ahead of us, sniffing the bark of a pine, touching a twig or leaf. Prints from paw and foot weave on behind us. Our eyes follow the movements between the trees across the water, where pairs of geese go quietly.

stars flicker through the temple
