Keeps Spinning Around

 steps in the circle
one foot after the other
 keeps spinning around
 I've been fixated with spirals lately,
you may have noticed?
There is something about the shape,
continuity, fluidity, motion...... and more.

When I doodle this is the shape I return to........

Listening to Chill Radio,
as I often do whilst in the zone with my spirals
I notice the lyrics ~ 

And I've learnt how to play it
with one foot in front of the other
and there's no way to win it
we all just spin around and around
.
Tom Baxter Lyrics

You know how it is you hear half of the lyrics,
 the more you listen the more the words surface, you have a aha moment, 
you think yes that's it, 
you align with the sentiment, it resonates........

Downward Cycle ~

rain and more rain, cold too
fear of flooding again after the rain
bouts of insomnia
alopecia flare-up

Upward Cycle ~

sigh when flood was averted
 yellow rapeseed field through my window,
looks great against the grey, even better against the blue
found a new pleasing Merlot 
finished the path and the painting
going in our camper-van to the coast soon 
my love's birthday today
shhhh he said not to advertise it ;~)

Love the good and bad shared like this! I may have to play along with that next week! Amazingphoto! I love the spirals as well!!
I feel as though I'm doing some of that spinning myself--and not necessarily in a good way!

I used to think the downward motion of our cycles were a painful and unnecessary process, but I realize they are as important as the upward ones... just part of the journey. Love the photo.

i love you so. truly it is through life's challenges that our heart is ultimately freed. compassion and our ability to see deeply into the heart of each other and each new moment is an ability forged through these darker times. spiral in, spiral out. thank goodness we can offer light and love to each other and help each other along the way.
you are always a great force of light and love in so many lives.
and i thank you for your strong presence in mine.

Mostly Spiraling in and out here.
Spirals are a part of life. I have a pink one tatooed on my shoulder.

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...
