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

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!

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..

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…
