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 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 ~

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.

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…

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 …
