Ordinary Moments

Rebecca speaks of ordinary moments ...
in my most ordinary moments
at the kitchen sink say ...
I'm transported somewhere else ...
somewhere a little less ordinary,
less familiar,
the moments become extraordinary,
the moments turn to magic ...
I see the familiar
 with 'fresh eyes' it's 
COSMIC

BTW All images are SOOC
(straight out of the camera)


Why not stumble over there yourself?

Wow Sue, this is really something seen with new eyes. Love it, these images are stunning. And I have to remember "SOOC" - will adopt that!

This is lovely - that you can find beauty in the everyday. It's a rare gift.

I was once planting a banana tree in my garden when I was suddenly and shockingly transported to a strange and terrifying place. Fortunately I was acquitted for lack of evidence only a couple of days later, but still had to pay my own bus fare home.

Have a lovely day, Boonie

Sue,
You know the Zen saying "Before enlightenment,Chop Wood Carry Water. After Enlightenment, Chop Wood Carry Water." I am not certain there was a camera involved in that progression but if there were, I believe that this may have been the outcome. It is simply stunning. SOOC should be your mantra for the day my dear. Lovely..lovely. By the way your new bannerhead and the background are simply divine. Thank you.
xoxo,
Noelle

SOOC? Amazing. Do you have settings that help this along? I'm agog over these pictures. And your banner is wonderful. I hope you keep it up for a while so we can enjoy it for a little bit.

This is so very beautiful - your words, photos and feelings. There is so much of beauty in the ordinary.

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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 …
