Pond Blessing

Today I have a little more 
hop in my hop!
a little more spring in my step,
 I can actually move around better in my cast.
I even managed some light chores stood on one leg!
What is giving me added Joy is the prospect 
of the sun's return, for this year we
will be witnessing brand new life forming!
Our pond's first season of growth 
and with the sun's help
we're hoping for an abundance of
wildlife to find it's way here.
The National Trust will be planting 
wild flower and grasses,
we hope some winged creatures will take
a fancy to our pond too,
maybe even a swan!
We are planning a little initiation ceremony
for the spring equinox, kind of a blessing on the pond.
A few candles set afloat on the water
that sort of thing, if anyone has any 
more suggestions to make 
this special I would be
over-Joyed 
to hear from you.

Sending over to the
Joy gatherer

you are stirring my primal heart in deep delight. a pond, the promise of spring. the song of frogs, the chance for swans. the sheer beauty of living a life reflecting the exquisite beauty of the day and night sky. i am not sure there could be a more loved and revered heart center for the natural world then a pond.

i wait with wonder and sweet expectation as do swans, frogs, tiny silver fish, tall regal cranes and an occasional family of foxes.

just
checking in
on your mobility...




{{ float flower*petals
on your pond
during the spring equinox
to bring
Abundance of Life;
i float them down our creek
in times of approaching drought,
one
never
knows... }}

I'm thrilled to hear you're getting around a bit better. Even more thrilled to hear the pond progress and see the image of the swan family. The pond behind my house has no swans, but it provides me with no end of delight being able to watch the finches and redwing blackbirds in spring, the mallards with their babies in spring and summer, the eagle fishing or getting chased by crows year-round.

A pond blessing--a wonderous and rich event welcoming both the pond and the coming spring. Your photos couldn't be more beautiful.

Oh, yes floating candles....in Hawaii tiny paper boats are sent out to sea with flaming candles. It is a sight to behold. Yours will be as beautiful. Your photographs are exquisite, they transport me to a beautiful place on this earth. Thank you.

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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…

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 …
