Sailing into Joy

Sometimes we're feeling it,
sometimes we're not ...
Sometimes our boat
has slipped right into the
doldrums
without our knowing
or
even run aground!
No matter how we heave and push we're going nowhere,
we know we must wait,
wait for the moment.

For we know that just as we
slipped into the gloom,
we will effortlessly slip away,
 in a moment.

In the blinking of an eye
 winds will change direction,
the tide will turn
and
off we go sailing into
JOY

oh sue...lovely sailing with you on your wisdom of peace.
thank you for the respite. for me it has a blustery day, i am completely exhausted...so moored on the sand edge and waiting is a welcome relief!
especially if the waiting is beside you!

much love,
rebecca

It seems like things are changing ever more quickly, that we're either feeling like we're sucked away by a rip tide or flung far inland by great waves of chaos. And then we wait -- for balance to be restored, for some hint of the meaning of it all. Beautiful, Sue.

Meri's comment seems visionary judging by what happened a day after it was placed here.

All of a sudden our own individual introspections don't seem so pertinent any longer....

bringing messages of peace
but mostly of TRUST

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…
