Haiku my Heart #41 ~ Simple Eye

bedazzled by life?
keeping the eye simple helps
and good grounding friends!

The sun is shining and 
I'm sat here in my towel drying off,
in 55 mins I will be
heading for a country farmhouse in the
High Peak Derbyshire
 for my
'Letting Go Yoga & Art Retreat',
but before I do I must post my haiku!

Will visit you all when I return!

Thanks to all who wished me well.

This has been my lesson all week, Sue. To stay grounded and keep things simple as life throughs glitter on my path.
I love this piece.
Enjoy, savor and delight in your time for yourself.

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...

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 …
