Puente Poetry: Mother Earth

two whippets on a wide beach at low tide

ah how the sea air lifts
our spirits, the wide expanse of
tidal sand feels soft beneath our feet
while we glance towards the pine

~ where raven nest with eyes that see ~

the colours in each mountain
painted by a sacred hand that guides
our quest to honour and tread lightly on
this beloved mother earth

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

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket climbing over the roots of pine

earth day
we dust last season
from our boots
roots link where pine stand vigil
above an ancient loch
