I'll Never Forget ....

Mixed media art
in honour of the 'special ones' 
gone before.

William my father, called me his little buddy,
 loved by all for his wicked sense of humour,
his roguish ways, generous spirit,
not a day goes by that
I don't think about
his parting night,
the glint in
his eye said
 'I love you little buddy'.

*****

Beautiful Alice my mother, 
doting mother,
always there to say
 'there there'
 she loved Roses chocolates,
 ground coffee on Sunday
and totally in love
with my dad.

*****

Eric special friend,
a big cuddly bear of a man,
aware of his spiritual need,
caring and comforting, always in my heart. 
Must be with God 
 he talked about him endlessly
and, his lovely wife Freda
remembered fondly
forever.


Joining in with friends, honouring those gone before ~

Hi Sue.
What a beautiful work of art you've made in memory of lost loved ones. The few words you've written about each one are so touching and say so much about them ~ beautiful words honoring beautiful people.
I became involved in this Day of the Dead celebration because I lost my dear brother last Fall. It has been so very helpful to me.
It is nice meeting you, Sue.

Each special tribute, so beautiful in your words and sentiment. The collage is beautiful and will remind you of your sitting down with your mom and dad and friends and thinking deeply about them every time you look at it.

I just love your commemorative art piece, Sue. The colors are so incredibly vivid. I'm still in the early stages of "arthood" and wonder if you would e-mail me the details of how you created this? Also, are these acrylics, and if so, what colors or combos did you use? I also love the stories of those you remember. That's what I hope to begin tonight when I sit with my loved ones by the ofrenda.

Aww, Sue, this is one of the loveliest hommages to beloved passed souls I've ever seen. You inspire me to do something similar. God bless you. Annie
Sue; thanks for sharing your memories with the rest of us. I also enjoyed the photos below of the car in the drive way; but saddened to read of your daughters illness. Hopefully there are answers and results by this point in time?

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

The thinnest of threads

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 …
