Do You Believe?

Do you believe?
Believe in the moment?
Believe in the power of the moment?
All of those words
where did they go I asked?
those wise words,
those very wise words?
I wanted to organise them,
to keep them secure,
I didn't want to lose them,
they were so precious.
I felt insecure for fear of losing
those words,
for fear of maybe losing myself?
My hard earned self?
I became confused,
lost and afraid!
What was I to do I wondered?
I knocked on my door, 
I asked, what to do?
A small voice whispered
BELIEVE
'believe in the power of the moment',
I listened, I believe!


These are my musings on
 taking in information,
on absorbing things that resonate with me, 
that they go down into the well springs
 and remain there until needed?
Until needed to be drawn upon.
I have been feeling an inclination
 to trust lately,
to trust that what is needed will be there in the moment?

What do you believe?

Haiku my Heart #12 Blossom

Blossom of my loins
laughter for a heavy heart
chase away the day ....
Today has been a heavy day, 
I have had a heavy heart,
my haiku is late,
load was lightened by 
laughter,
sharing, 
caring

Stumbling towards ecstasy at Hardwick Hall

Hardwick Hall 
More Glass than Wall
Side entrance to my neighbour's house.
Click to see her initials on the balustrade? 
Side view of front entrance, her horse 
dismounting platform in the foreground.
View from her front entrance, 
looking towards my cottage 
just beyond the ponds.
Much stumbling towards ecstasy has,
and does go on here!

All will be revealed!

Haiku my Heart #11 Words

Words abandoned me,
they wouldn't come out to play!
I wait in silence.

Bliss Bubble Monday Reminiscing


Monday was always
wash day
This was the very same washing machine
we had in our kitchen,
The Hotpoint Empress,
not the Princess, 
but the pretty impressive Empress!
Largest washing machine on the street, so mum said!

It had a very big, black agitator
in the middle swishing the clothes round.
First delicate whites,
next white sheets,
next colours,
last dad's mucky pit clothes! 

I loved the little door
 to the house underneath!
It was a storage area for all associated
wash-day paraphernalia. 
I nearly fitted  inside that house, as I remember!
I also remember my very best friend Elaine,
she got her wrist stuck in the mangle, 
 putting her fingers where she oughtn't
when mum had her back turned,
she ended up at the doctors! 

The Empress sat next to the pot sink,
it doubled up as a counter
where I was sat at night to get rubbed down
after my bath!

HAPPY DAYS

A Stroll around my Neighbourhood

Did you know?
I have a famous neighbour?
Though she's not actually alive now,
least, not on this plane!

We often go round by my neighbour's house,
it's just over the hedge from my back garden.
One of the things my neighbour's house 
is famous for is it's windows.
When the house was built late 16th century,
windows and glass were a luxury,
in fact you might say 
they were as valuable as gold!
Golden Windows!
Today we had a leisurely stroll
through our neighbour's garden
it was beautiful, 
as the golden evening sun 
hit the ice water on one of the 
seven ponds.


Next Sunday I'll show the entrance to our neighbour's house.

I'm Painting a Rainbow

It has been so,so grey here in the UK today ....
no wonder we're all suffering from 
SAD
seasonal affective disorder 
lack of light,
lack of colour,
all goes to make us
SAD
So I have decided I'm making my own light,
my own colour,
I'm going to paint a rainbow of colours:
 RED 
YELLOW
PINK
BLUE
ORANGE
PURPLE
GREEN
there, I feel much better now!

Ordinary Moments

Rebecca speaks of ordinary moments ...
in my most ordinary moments
at the kitchen sink say ...
I'm transported somewhere else ...
somewhere a little less ordinary,
less familiar,
the moments become extraordinary,
the moments turn to magic ...
I see the familiar
 with 'fresh eyes' it's 
COSMIC

BTW All images are SOOC
(straight out of the camera)


Why not stumble over there yourself?
