Precarious Edge

Standing on the edge
poised for possibility,
precariously.

My heart wants to fly
but my feet are weighted
by all the what ifs?

Security ledge
you are but a delusion,
I'll hack of my boot
and


Linking with Rebecca for
Haiku my Heart

FLY!
There, I finished it for you, just as I heard it in my head. You are correct dear lady, there is no ledge. What is to be is just that, what it is to be. Live until you die, don't just be alive.
I have missed you. So busy here at Spadoville, but I will return with stories and other entertainment later this summer. (At least I hope it will be entertaining). So good to visit here sweet Ms. Foxy.

Much Peace

Sometimes we read things that put us into our past. The emotions they arouse are so familiar. Reading these was like that.

Oh, those pesky what ifs are always weighing so many down. Sigh...

Good that you removed them from your life and flew!
Ohhh now I get it! At first I didn't see any letters in your painting... I know the feeling but glad to hear you can fly. Amazing feeling isn't it. :) Have a wonderful weekend dear.

FLY! Oh, yes. I love your senryu today. It is just what I needed to hear. Love the painting. Did you do that yourself?
Marit said…
Oh yes... gorgeous haiku and fabulous artwork... enjoy the flight!

i think the consensus is to fly. i vote with the majority but know it is easier said than done. we're all here with you.

I love your collage and it gives me ideas for making one myself. Your haikus are perfect--everything I weigh day in and day out.

I hate standing on the edge of ledges...but I do like the thought of flying, rather than falling ~

Superb ending ~

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...
