Haibun: Carried by Waves

#Haiku Happenings #5: Xenia Tran’s latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

The opposite shore is wrapped in morning mist, the snow-capped peaks invisible. Driftwood lies scattered on the sands. Here and there, a trunk rests upright. We greet red noses, wind-swept faces. Our eyes begin to water from the icy breeze.

leaves and trees
carried by the waves
winter mountains
