Haiku for Virgins, Creativity & Gratitude #9

Painterly Mary
may I delight for all-time 
in your flouncing skirts
in whatever light I find you!

I thought I'd get the paints out, 
they have been in a dark cupboard.
In this case not actually paint but 
water based dye and rub-on metallic for those interested,
photo taken in two different artificial lights. 

For Haiku my Heart
&
'Virgin a Day'

you are so right i seem to be staying up way too late and rising way too early!

love is the strongest pull.
thank you for your place in my haiku/mary heart!

sue,
She is absolutely delightful! She is fairylike and beautiful. In fact, she looks much like Botticelli's women. All his goddesses were pregnant. I wonder if you were thinking of your daughter in law. Such a beautiful coloring of dyes you chose. It was such a pleasant and joyful surprise.
xox,

Mary is beautiful!
She is so beautiful and I love that she is painterly. I haven't used my own metallic rub on paints for years. I have to dig mine out as I really like the colors you created.

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 …
