Tanka: Embrace

Cairngorms National Park


west side of Lochan Mor, trees in full leaf and reeds waving in the breeze


embraced by reeds
a breeze ripples the water
in this heatwave
a shaded rock offers a seat
covered in grateful glances

We wish you all a very happy Saturday and a wonderful weekend!
