#Tanka 43 – Car Ferry

Sun cocoons island
Promise of a calm crossing
~Countdown to cast off~
On mainland life changes gear
Fast roads cause slight brain schism

She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. I think you are so good at portraying that same thing in your writing too, Andrea. What would we do without our moments of tranquillity to sustain and refresh us? I think I might go mad if someone told me I would be subject to noise and busy-ness for every day of the rest of my life D:

  1. I loved the tanka, of course, but my other observation is your mud flats look just as uninviting as our mud flats. lol

    Wishing you a brilliant Thursday, dear friend!

    1. Thanks 🙂 They are only little mud flats. I quite liked the look of them from the ferry, and could imagine taking my shoes off and squidging across them quite happily on another occasion! But, need I tell you? I am strange 😉
      Gosh, it’s Friday now and nearly time for a cup of tea and a flapjack, and I’ve done nothing that anyone would call work today. Have been chatting on FB messenger though, about some mutual beta reading/a book swap in November, so had better get down to some hard work this October.
      Wishing you a brilliant weekend, dear Bill 🙂

    1. Thank you, Cybele 😉 I adore my trips to the Isle of Wight, when I visit my daughter and grandkids (or can I call my 16 year-old granddaughter a kid anymore? She’s very much a young lady, methinks!).
