Together we can
travel to the stars and back,
we are soul-sisters.

This week has been one full of emotion for me,
but I have come to appreciate even more the sparkles in my life.

My online sisters and the occasional brother, are you reading me Joe! ;~)
My yoga mat mates,
My fleshly sister, we are quite a few years apart age wise,
when I was growing up she was already married.
Dallas, (isn't that a super name?) lived overseas for about twenty years 
so when she returned to the UK we had to get to know each other all over again!
Next week we are going to a posh hotel dinner & dance,
today I'm on my way over to hers, 
we are going to talk ~


this is the nickname my love gave me when I was a slip of a lass,
my proper name being Susan Fox.

As one of three sisters, I know the importanmce of connecting. As one blessed with some awesome soul sisters, I know the joy and wholeness that comes from connecting there too ! So glad you have that joy !
Enjoy in, Sister !

oh sue i can only tell you that your place in my heart is as vital, uplifting and treasured as i hope mine is in yours. so grateful we have each other, no matter time, no thought of distance. but ones day, we most certainly must meet!

enjoy your sister time.

Love your nickname...Shoes 'n Frocks! Aren't sisters wonderful??? Mine is so different from me, yet we have that special bond that transcends everything else!

I love this image....and a super message in your haiku...I have a cousin my age (60), and we tell each other we want to grow old together....we'll see...she lives in Florida, and I don't like it hot!

I love your nickname. So charming and perfect from a young beloved.

I'm reminded that I haven't talked to my sister in over a month. I must talk to her tomorrow.
I can imagine this very well. I had no sister(s), but I had a brother (R.I.P) with whom I did everything. We travelled together, biked together, had same circle of friends and so on.
Wonderfully composed haiku.

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...
