Haibun: Waves Of Colour

 

gold and russet autumn trees covered in snow

 

When someone asks about first snow it seems so long ago this blanket caught our Autumn by surprise. Russets and golds had things to say to those willing to stay and listen.

Haibun: Where Frogs Are Sleeping

Cairngorms National Park

 

two whippets in the snow in winter jackets, sniffing the wall by the loch

 

In the glen November rain has turned to snow for all her answers and covers our trails with a blanket of stars. Most trees have lost their leaves. A delicate filigree stands guard beside the ice that sheets the loch. The world turns almost monochrome with subtle hints of colour.

sleeping frogs
below the ice their hearts beat
in quiet bliss

We wish you all a magical day! With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
