Bitter Sweet

This bitter sweet life,
who has the recipe to blend
maybe God will know?


Bitter Sweet,
can both exist side by side and be palatable,
leaving no aftertaste?
Do they form a wholesome whole, 
as I am told?

When bitter is present 
do I focus on the sweet to balance?
Will sweet mingle with bitter
 and lessen it's bite?


Bitter
Endless circles of
should we,
shouldn't we?
If we do
then how will it effect relevant others?
If we don't
then how will it effect relevant us?


Sweet
Sweet Connie Mae,
Dreaming of bonding days with my grand-baby.
Listening to 'Beachlife' wondering if the day will come?
Beauty I find in places like Deeply Humbled
this post and video touches me deep.


Linking with Monica

Intriguing work....Life can certainly be just that - bitter and sweet, at the same time

Bitter sweet- not meant to blend, but balance.
"maybe"

Everything hinges on that conditional word, doesn't it?

Maybe.

Dear Ms. Foxy... Yin and Yang of life, the balance. Sweet and sour, (bitter), good and bad, cold and hot. So, when do you decide that you need to make a decision?

Much Peace

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...
