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.

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...
