Reality Check-In


Dark & Dank
 ~
still cold 
rain dashes pink blossom
also dashes my hopes of a spring get-away

Celeste our old camper-van
in need of some TLC
rust worm has attacked her over winter

caught sight of a dead badger-
those pesky blighter speeding motorists!

Light & Fluffy
~
big full moon
baby fox to be born soon
shawl nearly finished
just the fringing to do
the days I'm counting
only a few!

light mornings
followed
by 
light evenings
makes for a 
light spirit

being settled by
warm words
spoken by 
soft souls
with kind hearts.

the photos are absolutely exquisite, but the poems spoke tons... I find it takes a lot to allow one to be vulnerable. And we all need some TLC :)

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...
