#Haiku Happenings #7: Xenia Tran’s latest #haibun!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

a part focused shot of a black whippet's face between bent grass

Behind the scenes our companion has been doing deep work and research into her family trees. She was already familiar with the Swiss and Frisian connections. Now she’s discovered a line that goes back to sixteenth century Flemish and Dutch roots, to people who settled on land that used to be sea. Looking at images of their West Coast we see the same waters, a spiritual connection through landscape and time.

deep within
this longing to be by the sea
the same sky
