Haiku my Heart #23 Rising of a Petal

'Love'

If I speak softly
and lovingly to petal,
will she rise once more?
Love,
 the fluid
that nourishes all life!

Ms Foxy... You can feel the love of mankind here at your place. Much needed around the world these days. Fighting, lashing out at others, wars, wars and more wars. Yes, you're making peace. I need to seek this out of what ife presents. Glad I found it here.

Peace

Very beautiful words, love does nourish life. Without love all would be lost. Wonderful photos.
You have such a motherly, nurturing side, Sue, just like mother nature. This quality in you will help cultivate the cycle of growth in Petal. The leaves are shaped like a big heart! Another cue you're on the right track! xxox

even your orchid, holder of your lovely voice, beautiful quiet companion, has grown in the shape of a vital heart....just being near you!

Perhaps not this flower, but her sister reborn.

Perhaps I should bestow so much love on my orchid ..... I occasionally entertain thoughts of the trash can, but then I remember what beauty she gave .... And hope she'll do it again ...

Dearest Sue,
I love the tenderness of this whole story, the fall of the blossom that had become such a part of your self, such a steady, daily reminder of strength and vulnerability at the same time. Its fall and then resurrection, as it were, seems not only a rise of the life of the flower, but of your spirit and that of your mother whose birthday you are remembering. Your mother and mine were born a day apart. My mother's birthday is tomorrow. I lost her 6 years ago and still miss her terribly.
xo,
Noelle

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
