through a gap
between half-buried rocks
seaweed nods
towards the misted mirror
where memories sweep past

Monoku: Wide Awake

A monoku is a haiku written as a single line. You can see some examples in my earlier post A Tribute to Stuart Quine.

The above monoku was inspired by the dreamy atmosphere on the misty beach and the song Silent Lucidity, which kept playing through my mind as we walked here.

Wishing you all a very happy Monday and a wonderful week ahead,

For more than fifty years I have taken part in peaceful demonstrations and art projects in support of equality and fair treatment of all. We have come a long way and still have further to travel to create a world where everyone feels welcome.

Wishing you all a peaceful Thursday and may you stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Whatever the weather it’s always a real treat to spend time in nature and immerse ourselves in the landscape.

This is one of the viewpoints along the trail from yesterday’s long post A Walk in Rosehall Forest. You can see a different section from the trail under drier, and colder, weather conditions in New Horizons.
