View out of focus ...

World's been turning upside down
calls for clarity

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

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!
