Blooming Friendships

A tiny seed is tucked away
somewhere on distant soil,
finding its way there not by 
some migrating bird
but 
flying on the wings of friendship,
soon the sun will turn her
attention to the work of warming
and
 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
2012

i want you to know as i walked into the light of this new day...before i even dreamed of your words here it was just this that filled my heart!
your poppy seeds...so full of promise and perfect colour so much like cupped hands carrying water to nurture every soul. today as a symbol of promise, to give deeper roots to the friendship we aspire too even across the limitless sea...
i will scatter the priceless seeds.
this is what i was imagining as i walked the sun into the sky. as you might have been forming these words in the very same sacred moment.

oh how i love you sue, with a love that defies time and space.

my seeds for you will arrive before you are winking at the promise of spring!

oh how i love you.

Sue dear,
These poppies are glorious. The seem to contain all the colors of the rainbow and the seeds of friendship that have been sown between us for over a year now. I often think of you when I see poppies or the seeds. They are indeed like bulbs of bright promise. I am so thankful for our friendship and so happy that we will have another year together. I wish you and your lovely family a peaceful and happy New Year. Thank you for your insightful words on my poem today. I felt such a soul connection with you and thank you for reminding me of the beautiful blooms of which cactus are so capable. :)
All My Love,
Noelle

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...
