love is
unspoken kindness
on soft sand
a thousand candles
that light up the road

the winds blow wild and
free around the forest

sheltered by the trees
a peaceful pulse
beats in the soil

fairies sweep the leaves
and wash the curtains

fearless of the wolves
who prowl and leap

into the joy of their
own autumn story

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and animals affected by hurricane Irma, the brave people from the emergency services and all the police and rescue dogs who are doing an amazing job.

Quadrille: Dream Waves

 

black whippet with an orange ball chasing waves on seashore

 

words can barely capture dreams
whose wings caress the dawn

the world has so much beauty still
it wants to show us more

we are here to chase the waves
in shades of turquoise blue

our gratitude spills over
when blessings feel this true

blue whippet looking at sailing boats anchored at Plockton

 

another sailor drops his anchor in the sheltered bay
mountains link around his sanctuary with calm he only feels
the wind blowing through his soul, the waves rolling through his heart
