Haiku my Heart #25 Heart Focused Haiku

Recuerda mi Corazon
For Haiku my Heart Posts

My yoga practice usually leaves me a little lighter, 
this week we focused on the 
heart chakra gratitude meditation,
I left my class with a feeling 
of belonging to something greater than self!

Often times when my mind is busy,
 all thoughts running riot,
I can feel overwhelmed, 
I find sitting and focusing 
on the breath soothing and comforting.

(")_(")  happy easter

Oh Ms. Foxy.... This is such a beautiful Hailu and story. We walked together today. I was full of anxiety earlier for a variety of reasons. As I walked from the crowded parking lot to the entry of the grocery store, I knew I could do something about it, so I said to myself, "Listen to yourself breathe." I did so, and calmed right down. So happy to see you feeling "high" on spirit. Peace to you my friend.

Sue ,
This is lovely. Your images are so restful and I love the Shadow rabbit Mudra. I went to a Buddhist Psychology Retreat last week and we spent the whole day meditating and focusing on the breath. Mindful meditation. I was able to draw on it during the week in moments of stress. We also did a Loving Kindness meditation. I think that these meditations truly broaden the spiral don't they so that one feels such a oneness with others and with the universe.
Namaste Sue,

Hi Sue~ Your weaving of photo montage, haiku, and meditative poem leaves me calm and at peace: namaste, sister-on-this-earth.
The sunsets bring the rest of nightfall, the elongated hands bring grace, the peach-colored flower brings the beauty of nature. I was wondering if the cute handmade animal was a donkey? Stretching in a yogalike position? The mudra in the upper left is said to represent the connection between inner energy (intuition) and outer energy (inspiration).
I love to place a bolster under my chest and ocean breathe. I can feel my heart open up which is the most amazing feeling...
I loved your post; it was especially rich in feeling and depth as it coincided with Good Friday... Wishing you a blessed Easter, Love, Margaret

Exhale rippling waves...I'll try that in mynext meditation session. Should have a soothing effect.

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…
