Postcards from Paradise #6 Fashion Fandango

Sun sinking low in the studio,
thoughts turn to our own
fashion fandango ...
Do I go red? or gold?
Oh, the pleasures of paradise
at least for a few days!

May Day today and the return of
our
little house martins,
they made it
all the way
from
Africa!

All that distance to find this little island,
this little hamlet, this little cottage,
how clever is that?

Speaking of talent, I'm in awe of the incredible skills shown by all the artists
who have so generously given of themselves
to support Rebecca in
Visit and see for yourself

Gorgeous color contrasts Sue! Decisions, Decisions. I love that you are thinking of fashion trends and fun, and that gold lame torso in the photograph is to die for. Stunning! The Red Hibiscus Flowers are Magnificent and as glorious as May Day should be. If I am not mistaken, House Martins are from the Swallow family are they not? Back in the 80's there was an English indie pop band (a bit marxist in tone which is right up my alley) called The Housemartins. I doubt they were hanging round the cottage though or it would not be the peaceful place you love so much. Happy May Day my dear. Thank you for your beautiful images.
Love,

dear sue,

my cat has suddenly jumped on my desk and his head is draped across my arm. i can only type with my right hand. did you know i am left handed?
he is purring so loudly, can you hear him? i am not sure if it is the arrival of your house martins or his affection for colour and kindness that drew him so close.
but then everyone i know that knows you, feels the same!

i love you sue, happy may day!

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...
