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

Sue, such a wonderful collage, and the words go so well with it.

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

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…

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 …
