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-…

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
