Postcards from Paradise #4 ~ Under Fluffy Pink Clouds


Our first spring evening walk
under fluffy pink 
clouds ...
we strolled through our neighbour's garden,
 her windows shone in the golden light,
we paused at the water's edge
to reflect ....
on gratitude ...
for being here
enjoying the moments!

BTW
My neighbour's name was
Elizabeth of Shrewesbury
AKA
Bess of Hardwick.
Bess was a very powerful woman of her time,
having royal connections
with
Elizabeth I of England

Ah yes - Bess of Hardwick! That rings a bell.

I did think that looked like a very grand house! I read a book about Bess of Hardwick-a most daunting lady! Beautiful pictures of your stroll!

Paradise indeed! What a dreamy lucsious world you live in!

Happy that your week is starting out in the pink.

Dearest Sue,
I meant to comment yesterday but got busy herding cats, literally. I am catsitting. This is completely lovely. It is like a Monet retreat in the middle of Mayhem over here. I love what you have done and the connection with English history. Your images are stunning, glorious really! Happy mum's day, by the way! I will comment later on your next post.
Love,
Noelle

Thank you Foxysue.. for your comments on my page.. you have anyway given such a treat here.. you know I was told by many a people that Haiku must show.. so I have always created pictures in my mind..and placed haikus showing that what I see in my mind.. seeing a picture and writing alos needs similar talent.. but then one can do it faster for one has something to focus on..

let me try spontaniety here..

Reflection of tree,
Thank God water is still
That makes leaves calm..

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 …

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...
