Sunshine & Shadows

Ups and downs of life,
like sunshine punctuating
 April's rainy days.

empty Warburton's seeded bread package & orange juice glass

The ups and downs of life are as sure and perpetual as 
UK rainy days clearing to sunny spells in April!

Learning how to roller coaster the ride
is mighty tricky and one might
say takes a life-time to learn,
or not, whichever the case maybe!

Me, I'm still learning.

Rain
My love almost turned momentarily to hate
after an explosion of frayed nerves.

I always get nervous at worming time,
Dougal dog, he always outwits me and
always detects the worm tablet,  
always manages to detach
it from the rest of his food and spit it out.
I was delighted when I fooled him
and dropped it into his mouth in a chunk of meat,
it never even touched the sides, 
victory short-lived -
vomited up a couple of hours later!

Still hobbling from my ankle injury, may have to go back to hospital.

Amazing photo! You are really inspiring me to experiment more with photography and not just snap shots of the every day variety... your haiku, of course, "works" with the photo perfectly! Plus, it is a great haiku in its own right! I do feel inspired :)

Smiling here at your haiku, your wonderful words and your photo! I need to eat dessert first more!
My dear Sue,
Life is filled with Light and Shadow isn't it. I am so sorry. I didn't know that you were injured. I haven't been blogging haiku while working on the thesis. My thoughts are with you. I love your soul expression with the shades of gray in your template and the burst of color in your photography. It is as though your spirit is finding expression and seeking light even in a dark time. It is who you are. It is beautiful. Please keep in touch dear.
Love,
Noelle
Hope you don't have to go back to hospital. Ah yes sunshine and shadows. Dogs can be tricky.

yippee for dessert first...those are the best sorts of meals...

had to giggle at the Dougal dog outwitting the pill...that's a skill usually reserved for cats...he must have studied under a Master. :) (also love the name Dougal)

I am laughing at your pups worming pill. I am amazed that Melly can find the pill buried in the treats and eat around it to deftly spit it out.

hope your ankle is better and you are back to downward dogs soon.

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path

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 …
