Haibun: Origins

#Haiku Happenings #6: Xenia Tran’s latest #haibun!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

a window shaped gap in a seaside rock through which we see stones, tidal pools and seaweed on the sand

The stones are dripping with seaweed, marvellous and green between sand and silt, where the water has been. Clambering down these rocks I wonder where their stories began. Like all the other stories floating around us and within us. From wolf to hound. From ancestors whose language I cannot speak, even though it sounds familiar.

through the open window
a seagull’s song

Below is a video by Julie Fowlis and friends, performing the Gaelic folk song Bothan Airigh am Braigh Raithneach:

We wish you all a very happy Monday and a wonderful new week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
