Haiku my Heart #24 Stretching

Stretching the body
and stretching the perception,
=  flexibility
Yesterday I fell and grazed my knee 
in the market place,
I got to think about my
 yoga practice,
had my stance been more
 'rigid'
the damage could have been much worse,
makes you think!

Ah to have such long graceful fingers! And flexibility -- now there's a good thing.
Dear Poet...keep stretching your perception!

it is so humbling to fall. (sadly i know too well)
so glad you know how to yield.

welcome to the weekend all dressed in Spring!

Love your play with shadow and light.
I hope your knee heals quickly. I had several falls a few years ago, and my knees aren't the same anymore. It's what we call age...

I love these graceful silhouettes as well. I think that they must be healing for you after such a fall. I wonder if this lack of rigidity that you have discovered is lapping into the corners of other areas of your being because here, you look so deeply at peace ~ a newly discovered risen self.
Love,
Noelle

Stretching certainly helps.
Really great post, Sue! The elongated images with the "stretching" in the haiku--very creative. I love yoga for the insights it gives to both mind and body, how they're related. Massage your feet so it works all your points and makes the sore muscles feel better! xxox

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 …
