This beautiful hooded crow waited patiently for Eivor and Pearl to stop sniffing the sea urchins before walking over.

two whippets in winter jackets running along a wide path through the dunes

hopes and dreams
the warmth in your voice
travels with us
where the river meets the sea
older seals are barking

Haibun: New Dimensions

a black whippet in a winter jacket sniffing the stones on the riverbank

The eastern bank is stacked with stones, smoothed by journeys through ice and water. Sitting down with a pebble in my hand, I close my eyes and feel the pulse of the mountain, a deeper dimension of where we all come from.

heading north –
the wind on the river
brushes the trees
