Haiku my Heart #11 Words

Words abandoned me,
they wouldn't come out to play!
I wait in silence.

You hum it,
I'll play it :-)
My prediction:
Your mind is about to defrost and become fluent again.

Ms. Foxy... The photo is great. I'm looking and looking and trying to read the words. (The bottom one stull has me stymied) But your haiku words are definitely not as they appear. They are poetic and smooth. No way did they abandon you. Very nice.

Spadoman - The words in the photo of the book say 'I'm waiting for the moment' - I know it well as I was spending lots of time with Mum when she was working on this book, wish you could see it all, it's beautiful.

Mum - The moment is coming, I just know it xxx

This has a lovely feel and rhythm, and surely you're teasing us? (which is something that I would never do....). You're as eloquent as always.

Nice image too.
I'm not waiting for the moment. It passed me by many moons ago.

Have a nice day my friend, Boonie

I don't quite believe your statement, you did too well in spite of it.

I love those frozen trousers on the line in the previous post!

I love your haiku today! Playful. :) I've been reading but haven't had much time to comment, I want you to know I've been around though! Kat

wonderful! I haven't had time to write haiku lately (grad school is a harsh task master!), but I've been enjoying reading what others have written

your heart is willing
the best word waits, unfolding...
sweet is the slowness

This is stunningly beautiful. The image and the letters have the quality of something from the Victorian era. I love the ribbon around and the letters look as if they were written in some kind of illuminated wax which I think I have seen in another post of yours. It is lovely and I think that silence always has its place. Your haiku is perfect. By the way that is the most I have ever seen Boonie say in a response, so you must have done something right!

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... 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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...

Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
