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

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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
