Speeding By ~>~>~>

In keen awareness
I'm savouring the moments
as seasons speed by ~>~>~>


My sister is twelve years older than me, she said a few years back
"you watch when you get to my age then time really does fly".
These words keep reverberating in my ears, it seems
 no sooner the old year has passed than summer is
 upon us then swiftly making her retreat!

The melancholy may last for a moment or two
'The Party's Over' tune dances in my head
for awhile, I allow this feeling it's place,
this experience, for I know this is
one of many in this beautiful
thing called life!

i've had a slight variation of the journey. always too keenly aware of time fleeting, and therefore rushing, anxiety at not getting enough done...
i've done so well to detach from this that i often forget how old i am exactly LOL

you're right...we seem to be thinking along the sames lines. Perhaps it's I have a bd in a couple of weeks, didn't I JUST turn a year older yesterday...and my daughter just bought a condo downtown, how can that be possible.

enjoy the moment!

'Tis an art to savour in the midst of speed. May its perfection shine in you!

I was having the same thoughts this week...enjoy every fleeting moment.
I love the flock of geese at the end of your poem (at least that's what I envisioned) ♥♥♥
What your sis said is so true! As I read your post I started humming December Song.

My brother is 50. I'm 14 years older. It is quite true about time flying. He has 15 years of working life ahead of him; I will be almost 80 when he retires. Time feels compressed and sometimes it DOES feel a bit melancholy.

This is amazing and so true. Time is fleeting.

It's good to stop and be in the moment, realizing time passes by quickly indeed. I love the melancholic tone to your post without it getting too sad... (fall can make me the same way - and yes, my age...)

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.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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...
