Mind knots and jangles
Untangled softly in a
Windswept wave washed spell
This was inspired by the following beautiful post…..

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

Soothingly beautiful! And your lovely ones!
‘Untangled softly’ describes it so beautifully. I can almost hear the exhale, Seonaid 🙂
The spell of the shore, the magic in the sand, the healing of the water.
what magical light! We’ve had a lot of that light lately, haven’t we? Savouring every second of it. I will have to come back and look at this (and read it) when the skies turn against us. But of course you find beauty and magic in the leaden as well as the golden. 🙂
Fabulous light in this shot. Thank you for your kind words.
The light was lovely……the colours almost surreal 🙂
I’m so sorry about Oscar…..I’m sure he’s frolicking in water and tall grass in his dreams Xx
Lovely haiku Seonaid. Happy Fall!
Thank you…..it’s a big challenge for me to use so few words, but I love the form. It makes you get to the heart of what I’m thinking and feeling 🙂
Ahhh, Fall as it shines on your seashore… gorgeous. I’m NOT a poet and I know it, but yours is exquisite!
Thanks as always Gwynn…..haiku is great practise at being concise for me…..something I’m not naturally very good at…..there are after all so many beautiful words begging to be used!
yeah, untangled softly… Exquisite photo, Seonaid!
Thanks Amy….softly is the best way to untangle I find 🙂
Thank you for sharing your wisdom!

Lovely image and haiku, Seonaid. 🙂 I’m missing my beach.
I can only imagine…..and it’s been replaced with a croc filled waterway…..not quite so good for soft untangling 🙂
It’s just beautiful, the sea shore is wonderful.
Thanks Gilly, the sand ripples and the low light were a gift….and of course my companions were beautifully placed!
Wow thank you very much. Your haiku is the perfect response to my post.
Glad you like it Suzanne….I love the pace of your posts and their deep connection with the earth 🙂
Thank you Seonaid – that is such a valuable comment – it helps me focus on what’s working in my writing. I must say I return the compliment to you and your photos are truly inspiring.
Nice. [I think there might be a difficulty with the link … I think it’s been duplicated somehow.] I can just about smell the salty air and feel the coolness of the sand. As always, the dogs look as if they had a ball, they are so lucky (but I bet they know it). D
Thanks David, I’ll take a look at the link….it was done from my iPad which is never the best device for doing anything even slightly technical 🙂
That shot was taken a few weeks ago, and it was a really lovely evening, walking and unwinding with my son and the dogs.
Thanks Sue….it’s always good to get untangled 🙂
So true. Beautiful.
It always works wonders on me 🙂
