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.

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path

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 …
