Time for Change


I've taken down that old wallpaper
I'm lightening-up this house
paring-down
simplifying
making space
for expansion ~>

My abstract thoughts
skimmed the waters of time,



landing in the pool of purpose,
sinking to depths of deep emotion,
settling like solitary flint stones in a heap of silence.
Waiting, waiting for the water's bathing, the caressing, the calming and the lightening.


After the waiting they came, surfacing upwards and outwards,
rippling in ever increasing circles, rising, one beautiful thought giving birth to another
until they all merged into the oneness of Self at water's edge, a place called paradise.



Tonight at 9pm we'll be settling down to:

Apple pie & cream
+
 New season's
 'Downton Abbey' 


Yummy :~)

Your words are lovely. To me water is the strongest element shaping and changing things as seasons pass. <3

gorgeous and soul stirring as are your images. i too am a water baby.

sharing a slice of paradise with you is divine!
Exquisitely beautiful soothing photos and verse. Makes me want to rest in the silent space - waiting too... Making space for expansion... I feel it too, a transition of sorts, something emerging from the depths of Being(Self) and the chaos (ripples) that sometimes brings ~ ~ ~
I'll join you from across "the pond" for some of that apple pie and cream :)Christine
Elegant photography and delightful words ~ love the settling down with apple pie and ice cream ~ yummy ~ (A Creative Harbor)

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

Recuerda mi Corazon

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 …
