Spiritual Sunday #4 ~ Processing 'my' Truth

I had a visitation yesterday,
ghosts from the past came by my way,
they beckoned me
 "return through the door",
a door I'd closed and bolted before!
They said life's
 safe and secure in this room,
being momentarily tempted back to the
I stopped myself sharply in my own track,
I know no use in looking back.
That residence has a price way too high,
abandon my truth, my own heart deny!
(do you see my little heart hanging in the balance up there in this image?)

Yesterday I became unhinged for a while, 
after a former religious acquaintance called
 wanting me to return to 
a way of life that I had rejected. 
We all have our own mental anguishes, 
from time to time these old ghosts revisit and
 I have to put mine to bed once more
 in order to continue down the path of my truth,  
the path that has a heart without the price tag of  
'restricted freedom of thought'. 
(the expression thereof!)

oh sue...your pictures are soul stirring, mystical and alluring. thank goodness we have a seekers heart to find truth, beauty and light in each ordinary moment. this is holy, this moment, this mindfulness, this belonging.

i love your light.
Rejecting the ghosts from the past is the primary reason my sister refuses to have anything to do with Facebook!

And you are right to walk your path and seek your very own truth and stay true to your heart!
Those photos are magical, beautiful.

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...
