A Stroll around my Neighbourhood

Did you know?
I have a famous neighbour?
Though she's not actually alive now,
least, not on this plane!

We often go round by my neighbour's house,
it's just over the hedge from my back garden.
One of the things my neighbour's house 
is famous for is it's windows.
When the house was built late 16th century,
windows and glass were a luxury,
in fact you might say 
they were as valuable as gold!
Golden Windows!
Today we had a leisurely stroll
through our neighbour's garden
it was beautiful, 
as the golden evening sun 
hit the ice water on one of the 
seven ponds.

Next Sunday I'll show the entrance to our neighbour's house.

I love the sunlight reflecting on the windows of the neighbour's home, they're like jewels.

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... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
