Haiku my Heart #51 Cartwheeling

Since I am pot-bound, not able to venture out without aid,
I sit in the sunshine window with my camera
and imagine the day I'll be free to
cartwheel before the sun!
Cartwheeling is probably a little optimistic,
but the feeling will be the same!

Haiku my Heart, a place to share poetry
and a friendly hello ~> ~>

Had me confused Ms. Foxy. I thought you had given up marijuana! (Just joking of course). Hope that healing is coming quickly for your injury. I love the haiku you wrote today.

my darling,

oh how i hope your days are manageable in heart, soul and body. i understand the challenges of physical limitations and am so grateful that you will transcend yours completely.
i love you dear sue.
holding you close.
Initially I had the same reaction as Spadoman but then I saw and read the metaphor. Although I'll admit that pot does have its place--and often a Godsend for those who are ill. But, I guess you mean potted, like a plant, waiting for health and spring.

So pretty again, Sue. Sorry I wasn't here for a while - life has taken over! I hope that soon you can venture out again, but for now I wish for you to "listen" to the slowing down. Sending you hugs.

I am really enjoying these photographs...of light and reflection and slow moving days!
I find the idea of seeing cartwheels in the sun quite enchanting!

Whirling Haiku and Senryu

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...
