Haiku: Meet and Part

a small burn flowing through the forest

forest trail
a frog meets and parts
with its shadow

an upturned tree stump on the banks of a burn

The above haiku is a variation on Trust, as the frog’s movements reminded me of a moment when Eivor and Pearl were meeting and parting with their shadows on a forest trail two years ago.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday and a peaceful rest of the week,

Tanka: Breath of Peace

a winding woodland trail between pine trees and douglas fir

a place to sit
beneath the trees
with deeper hues
autumn breathing in and out
this peace, this peace
