Haibun: A Voice from the Unseen

#Haiku Happenings #4: Xenia’s latest #haibun!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

Findhorn Bay at low tide with canoes and rowing boats resting on shingle

This place speaks of other times, a voice from the unseen. Long before fishermen’s cottages turned into holiday homes. It is still the same river that flows to sea past scattered stones, the sound of shingle. The people change, the houses change. The bay sleeps where it always has, between sheets of silt and honey-coloured grass.

ancient chant
an oystercatcher piping
above the waves
