Grey & Red

Try accents of red
to energise dull grey days,
this dress fits real close!

Greys ~

going backwards to winter,
bills rise, income lowers,
my girl's not responding to medication,
too many nights of insomnia,
not sure of future moves!

Reds ~

Housemartins have flown back all the way from Africa,
are weighing up the cottage eaves as a possible home,
they must be optimistic about summer!

My love spotted a water vole on our stream bank,
they are at risk in this area.

I had a great evening listening to the fabulous
Acoustic Angels whilst feasting on 
mushroom stroganoff. 

 and of course,
my love affair with light and lens, still as strong as ever!

Linking with these lovelies:

I love how you deal with 'lemons' (that's the verb isn't it?) in your life... I hope your daughter is getting well and wish for a lot of red in your near future!

my darling,
wear the close fitting dress...
sip with passion the deepening red.
walk out to the pond where life is burgeoning.
you are never alone.
that grey is only a swift shadow that will lift,
that all hearts will mend.

holding each of you.

when monkey chatter

Balance. The grey, the red. Yet I would like to see less grey matter in your life, so I'll ask for positive energy to reach you and heal any wounds and discomfort for you and all you hold dear.
Writing about it might be helpful. Sharing it is appreciated.
The best to you and yours Ms. Foxy

A lot of Peace sent your way

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...
