Haiku my Heart #35 Peace

As tears of sorrow
fall on green and pleasant land,
 let's magnify peace.
This is my prayer as my country is bewildered
by mindless acts of violence.

Dearest Sue,
My heart is with yours tonight and I pray for peace and a resolution of all that has caused so much pain and upheaval. It is the product of so many factors that it is difficult for anyone to understand, but nothing is achieved by violence. Peace, understanding and compassion are the only roads to a hopeful and renewed world.
Love,
Noelle

Peace is the need of the hour for many nations around the world where there are disturbances, upheavals and destruction!! Your prayer is perfect for today's world!!
Yes, the leaves are weeping in their grief; the rainbow is smiling hope. i pray that the centuries of British civility will win through in the end, and understanding will start to repair the damage and the broken bridges. Your photos and haiku are exquisite, Sue.

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…
