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.

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

at times balancing the bitter and the sweet is a moment to moment decision, other times it is effortless. wishing you well.

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 …

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...
