Haiku my Heart #50

Had no idea!
I heard it on the grapevine!
be well, Rebecca
I have been away from Bloglandia, 
 had a nasty accident whilst walking my boys (dogs), fractured my ankle 
and whisked away by helicopter to hospital, so I didn't
know of Rebecca's pain. I take heart though that the
'circle of friends' are there for her
and me too!

Wandering back to a time
when windows were portals for dreaming....
life was rosy, each day an adventure....

huge classroom windows were always
more interesting than maths....

Miss would say I was a dreamer....
I was, still am....
Dreaming is deemed a wonderful occupation these days....
Bohemian Twilight

I dreamed I could be a tool, a proponent for love..........

Spiritual Sunday #6 ~Thou Art my Saviour

After grappling for a while with the same
old problems I decided
there was nothing else for it 
but to turn my attention to the light, 
knowing I would 
soon find some distraction.
This is what caught my attention,
something about the image made me think
of spirituality, I imagined there 
to be a church and steeple.
As I was feeling 
in need of some self healing, nurturing
I turned my attention inward
and created what I needed out of that
very same image it was a Picnik!

Haiku my Heart #49 ~ Numbers

 After yoga yesterday we discussed significant numbers,
today being Friday 13th,
unlucky for some they say!
On the other hand
the year 2012
is said to be an auspicious year,
The Chinese Year of the Golden Dragon,
taking place only once every 60 years
It also happens to be a leap year so
 that means the possibility
of climbing my same old staircase
an extra time this year!
The number 300 is significant too 
this being my 
300th post! 
whilst yesterday the 12th was
my blog birthday
2 years!

So what do these numbers all amount to?

Can I count on them to calculate my life?

Or are they just markers of time,
 as illusory as my shadows?

shadows behind me
 light always falls to the front 
illuminates now

BTW this is my 49th Haiku 
I'm sure this is a significant number! ;~)

PS I'm really getting into this numbers thing, 
apparently 7 is the perfect number
according to some bible scholars
so my haiku being 7 x 7
must be perfectly
ha ha

Joyful Reflection

Ring that bell Joy of Joys!
Beyond the laundry line silhouettes,
through the undergrowth,
the first pink and blue sky
reflected in our very own pond,
Joyful beginnings....

Photographica #1

Head in the Clouds 

This is what I have named my little creation, 
my intuitive digital escape, for this is 
what it is something to take me away
from my immediate cares.

I suppose you could say my
blog has become a kind of digital journal,
expressing innermost feelings visually.
Tomorrow my blog may morph into something else, 
but today I'm happy experimenting with
my photographs
pushing the boundaries further.

This was the original image.

 he who lacks his daily bread
 for him the day is very long"

Packing Away 2011

 ... a little sad today
packing away 2011...
taking down the last vestiges ...
time to move on,
live in new moments,

    Joy list:
  • waves now lap the shore of my newly excavated pond, glistening in the sunlight, looks like my own ocean!
  • baby fox continues to grow in the womb 
  • my crochet shawl is growing too
  • beautiful possibilities ~ 2012

when the dawn is still dark"

You're Worth It!

as much as anybody in the entire universe, 
deserve your love and affection.”

Blooming Friendships

A tiny seed is tucked away
somewhere on distant soil,
finding its way there not by 
some migrating bird
flying on the wings of friendship,
soon the sun will turn her
attention to the work of warming
 my little seed will surely be
aroused by its tender care,
to find a route through
this tough exterior terrain of life
so it may bloom too on distant shores,
as a reminder of all the beauty we share.

Here's to all Blooming Friendships
