Tanka: Only Silence

a church lit up at night with reflections in the water

there is no sound
from the puddles in our street
only silence
where the wind just blew
and rattled all the rafters

Thank you again for all your good wishes before we went on our blogging break and we hope you had a good week too.

These images were taken a couple of nights ago when the moon had a lovely glow.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday and happy moon-gazing when we see the full moon tomorrow,

with love from Xenia xxx
