Haiku my Heart #15 Sun Salutation

Frozen Dogwood Days
Sun Signalling Cessation 
Seed Salutation 

stirring still seeds,
breathing life into dormant depths,
diving deeply into the divine.

I will make your day by commenting and thanking you for making mine :-)
That cornus you captured in the top picture:
You know what you have achieved with that, don't you?
Cornus is always stiff and ungiving, even though it throws out a red stick now and then to cheer up the yellow ones.
You made it bend gracefully!!!
Did you talk to it? Tell it to let go a little?
I bet you did :-)
"seed salutation"

Sometimes phrases are so delicious, I just have to savor them. This is one!

Dogwood. It grows where I live. Sometimes people mistake it for Red Willow. All these photographs are stunning. I love the second one with the frost crystals. Just beautiful. The haiku, aliterative with esses and dees. I like it.

such a moment reminds me of life always moves and motions forward... the lilac bushes in front of my house i noticed the other day are growing just the most minuet of buds... even tho it is still so cold and winter is here spring is definitely in the air... the power of a seed... it is important to remember, thank you...

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...

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…
