Night

Owls wisely hooting
Grounding and discovering
Wolves magically howling
Full moon lights the field
Each step is an encounter

I wrote this tanka last night listening to the owls hooting at the distance. It was a warm autumn night, I kept the windows open giving permission to the crisp air and the sounds of the night enter my home and clear my thoughts.

The moon will guide you through the night with her brightness, but she will always dwell in the darkness, in order to be seen.

just a sunday!

on my way

sunrise by the river. i’m just back from my 5k, it was gorgeous out there this morning. crisp air, birds, a breeze, little things that make me happy!

this last week i went back to the office after 150 days of quarantine working from home. it’s a different world out there. i see many layers of adaptation on my way.

strong coffee early mornings

nothing better than a strong cup of coffee before going out to keep up with all the changes and stresses of the outdoor world.

have a wonderful sunday!

seasons

on my way today

the sun is getting lower and lower each day. the earth is turning gold, and the air is crisp. a new season is coming. i love each moment of it.

I went very early for a walk today, I met many people on the way, we exchanged smiles and said good morning. I could feel their positive energy for the new day ahead, hope they felt mine too! And you can feel it too!

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

books

books. i’ve many, my bookshelves are overflowing! i read a lot, and i really like to feel the weight of the book in my hands. most of the time i order the hardcopy, or the real book as i like to say. i’ve my kindle that i use mostly when travelling, and now in COVID times i’m using it more, i’m not comfortable in getting books by mail.

i don’t keep all the books i’ve read, only the ones that really touched me and i’m sure i’ll go back to them, so i donate most of my books during the spring, but this year the donation centres around here have stopped receiving books donations. i’ve sorted out the books i want to keep and made this pile for donation. these books are waiting for new hands to hold them.

And you? do you prefer hardcopy or electronic version? do you keep all your books?

A room without books is like a body without a soul.

Nurturing Thursday

Grounding

Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace.

Hello, it’s already Thursday and today’s post is 3 into 1! Instead of loading your inbox and your reader with 3 posts, I decided to combine all of them here. Hope you enjoy it!

the quote for Nurturing Thursday,

and below is my Etheree for Tanka Tuesday, this week poet’s choice.

flow
grounding
scattered thoughts
on earth magic
inconsistency
the deep need for a change
breathing in and breathing out
a few droplets of lavender
on my pillow under the bright moon
craving the energy for acceptance

Wishing a lovely day to you!
