Snow Blanket

Someone laid a snow blanket out here this cold morning, 
it beckoned me beneath for solace and succour.
So, with hot-water bottle in hand I slid 
into the softness thinking about love, 
possibilities and new moons!

A snow blanket offers the mind
a lair for protection and security,
to slip into the solitude,
to enter winter's wrap
enveloped in this

I'm biding my time here, in my lair.
My day will come, my season, 
and the snow blanket, it will melt, 
and evaporate into 
the ether.

And I will be gone into the summer sun!


Beautiful imagery! "...a snow blanket offers the mind a slip into solitude, to enter into winter's wrap, enveloped in this comfort." Love that! That's why I love winter :) Lovely photo too!

loving this snowy posting

thank you
Dearest Sue,
I am reminded of Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" first by your stunning image which I would love to frame and have near me always ; and next by your amazing prose which speaks of pausing and recognizing the intrinsic and inexpressible value of quietness and stillness that only a blanket of snow can provide . Lovely work!

dear sue,

i have been so absent from the blog world. this morning i have come straight to you and found a blanket of friendship that was never waned in
comfort and love.
thank you for being you, and all the seasons we have been blessed to know each other.

there is warmth in that blanket...ahh, but even more so under the rays of summer sunshine.

dear friend,
it was a breath of warm air to be away in san miguel. where the usual wifi access courtyard ran a muck leaving us completely off the grid.i am here to say i LOVED it! no phone, computer, heck i even left my camera go and just showed up every morning and allowed life to unfold in real time.
true confessions...wondering if my blogging days have come to an end.
thank you for visiting my unexpected post today and giving me pause to think more carefully on the idea of bowing out of bloglandia.

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 …
