Restrained not Broken

Sometimes life 
throws a restraining 
order on you,
you feel like a trapped tiger
wanting to escape,
 but the thing with restraint the more
you try to wriggle out of it
the tighter the restraint
becomes.

Acceptance of the situation means
stilling yourself, biding your time,
seeing the beauty that exists even when
boundaries are erected around you.
"Nothing stays the same, this too will pass"

what is death to the caterpillar, is life to the butterfly! your post brims with the power of true surrender and acceptance. two years ago I ruptured a disk in my back and was bed stricken for months! I came to know, like you, the power of surrender. blessings

...while within that restraint... listen for the still, small whisper. It will be profound!

Peace be with you,

You are wise not to struggle against it. May this time of healing make you stronger than ever.

We all live moments to years of binding restraint. You are very wise, sometimes it is best to just "stay" be at peace and wait. All things eventually change.
Wonderful photography to illustrate your wisdom.

Like you said...this too shall pass. Sending you light and love to get through this. I am enjoying the view though from your place of restraint.

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

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...
