Haiku my Heart #36 Pleats of Care

Each mindful moment
pushing the smoothing iron,
 forming pleats of care.


Memories of mother as sparked off by
 Rebecca's flower,
visit and see

Dear Ms. Foxy... I have missed you the past while. Either I came late or not at all, or didn't post a haiku. But glad i stopped by today. The photographnis amazing. Pleated, no doubt. It looksas if it were ironed that way, folds so neat, and great shadows too.
Your haiku moves me as it suggests a tool was used to do nature's work, but we all know better. I like it alot.
I hope this finds you doing good and that all is well.

Peace

How wonderful that a photo sparked such rich memory. Your flower is so very soft and sensuous...
So beautiful, Sue. I remember thinking of ironing as a form of meditation (but never so intricate as this one perfect rose!). And I loved watching the grace and calm my mother had ironing, too...

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 …
