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....

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

Recuerda mi Corazon

The thinnest of threads

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 …
