Moody - Me?

You know I'm one for these
moody sunset images
don't you?

This is not just any old sunset view though!

It's the most beautiful sunset view ever?
 The beginning of our very own pond,
not only will it be a haven
for wildlife,
but a saver of domestic animals  too!
I mean us.
This pond will be an overflow area 
for when our stream floods and hopefully
it will fill this bowl and not our home!

Actually it is quite exciting,
I dare not think about it too much,
it's huge, takes almost all of our field.
The National Trust are paying for it as part of a
larger flood defense project, but the pond is
situated on our property, we would have
never been able to afford anything like this.
The possibilities are endless, we
could float a boat on it!


Like the image and just thinking about this pond. Enjoy it's beauty and growth my friend.

I grew up on a piece of property in upstate New York with a pond on it - what stellar memories I have of my childhood there! It is huge...I'm excited for you!

Tell you what Sue... it's about time, isn't it? 12 years? OMG.
I'm wondering if you could ask the EA to add some fish to it and that might make your property even more attractive! They fund stuff like that - so if the concept appeals to you, feel free to contact me and I'll get you contacts!
Stephanie said… wonderful! to have a pond on your property. Besides the help with flooding the wildlife that will come should make for many many years of beautiful images and memories!

my darling....
i am an ocean girl. i grew up next to the sea and all my moves took me up the coast to wilder views in northern california.

family matters set in motion my land locked move to the mountains of prescott, az. the two ponds right outside our doors and favorite windows are my solace. now i will think of you on the cusp of such beauty as i drink in the peace of light falling on the face of ponds.

i am so happy for you and the foxes!

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

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...
