That's beautiful.

I like the softness of the photo and the seemingly easy acceptance that the swallow has flown away.

Thought it was my eyes :-)
Nostalgia reigns it seems.
Is that R. 'Handel' or possibly 'Peace' by any chance?
Are you going to join Boonie's 'Manchester and Milton Keynes Mondays' ? (:-) What a sense of humour.

I love the softness of both the image and the words. It is perfect for the soft morning light I see out my window.

The soft focus seems appropriate for these old-fashioned white roses, and for the idea of a season's sojourn.

a rose is so beautiful, no matter how sharp or blurry...and this captures all the softness

The image of the out of focus bloom and the missing, sojourning swallow are a lovely juxtaposition for this part of Fall leading us into winter. I like it very much. You have such a keen eye. Thank you for your lovely thoughts on my blog.
xo,
Noelle

Great photo! So creative, your words. I felt a lament of sorts as Winter approaches here in the Northland, yet the seasons all have purpose and meaning. Glad I stopped by.

Peace.

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people...

I was thinking what can I as one person do?
