Beautiful..This touched me somewhere deep inside..
Prayer knows no geographical bounds. Wherever we are we can pray, knowing that good will flow from our intentions.

Dearest Sue,
Thank you for this beautiful and remarkably wistful post, filled with love and compassion for the Japanese people. Thank you for mentioning ShelterBox as well. I am moved beyond words by your heart-opening message. I pray for their lives and their future, especially the future of children.
Much Love,
Noelle

The whole world is praying, we all unite in the care for each other. Japan helped NZ after the earthquake in Christchurch last month and now a NZ team of experts is helping Japan. We all reach out to each other.
Wonderful art and words.

I think we will all be absorbed with the tragedy of Japan for a long time to come. I pray the third hit of this triple tragedy - the nuclear power plants - will refocus the world on the need for better energy sources.

Very touching and the world extends a helping hand; we know somewhere deep within, that the land of the Rising Sun will rise up like a phoenix to shine once again!!

I love that a haiku can be so simple and yet so poignant -exactly as you have captured here. Beautifully juxtaposed with stunning and impressive images -are they your own beautiful creations? Thank you x

the beauty of love and compassion shines bright in your beautiful ku.... love the dimensional space within each art work, as if our prayers have reached across the short space and embraced their tragedy holding up those who cannot stand... thank you...
Dear Sue~ These paintings are so beautiful and meaningful! I love the image you evoked of our hearts reaching around the globe to Japan to touch the rising sun. Perfect, spare, moving Haiku.

A haiku seems most appropriate at this time as a vessel for our thoughts.
Beautifully illustrated by you.
A post both stirring and soothing at the same time.

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…
