Today, we finally got our internet connection! We might still be surrounded by a mountain of boxes, but we’re in and slowly finding places for everything. Nothing is going to be as easy as in town or as comfortable, but the compensations are the peace and quiet, and the impression of fitting into a bit of the landscape causing as little disruption as possible.
Colleen Chesebro seems to have chosen the prompt words for her weekly tanka challenge just to suit me.
This place, a spirit,
warp of dark, furtive movement,
weft of bright colours.
I taste joy in swift birdflight,
smell damp earth beneath fox pads.
