World's been turning upside down
calls for clarity

For more haiku poetry

Hope all settles down nicely for you soon.
Great photos, very creative and expressive haiku. Thanks for sharing these.
I felt a little out of focus on Tuesday, but it turned out to be nothing other than that my new dentures were a little tight.

Have a good weekend, Boonie

Dear Ms. Foxy... The photos are lovely, and the words poetic, even as they seem to share your heart with us. Like before, I will send out the good vibes, the peacefulness, the positive energy in hopes that it makes some things come into focus. Take what you need and send onthe rest to others.
Thank you for sharing.

Wondrous photography and meaningful lines,
The quality of being certain and definite is clarity
and you know exactly what you are doing.

Oh Mum, I love how you express the darkness in a peaceful way full of light. Indulge in the comments of your friend's and allow them to envelop you, I sure am lifted by their caring.

Love C xxx

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? 
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…
