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

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…

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 ~

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
