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

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 …

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…
