A Friend Indeed

A friend of mine popped round this afternoon,
she took me by surprise.
I was feeling rather 'fragmented', 
scattered even if you know what I mean?
I felt like I had come apart in so many places,
doubting if I could put myself back together!
This friend of mine has a special talent
developed through her own life's school of sometimes hard knocks! 
She's a dab hand at recognising all the jumbled up parts of you,
like the pieces of a jigsaw and she seems intuitively to know
how to fit them back together again. 
Confidently she identifies each of the positive features
 gently nudging them one by one back into place
until the whole body starts to regain its appearance,
its former beautiful, colourful self!
It is wonderful to have a friend with such talent,
it amazes me how she always calls
at just the right time,
always brings back the best of me!
I am grateful for such a friend.

Sending to Share the Joy

"in love lies the seed of our growth. the more we love the closer we are to the spiritual experience." paula coelho

the longer i live the more clearly i see that love is all that matters. that being in the force of love, keeping each other in the force of love...holding everything and everyone in the light of love, is what is needed.

i am eternally grateful to be graced by the light of your love. i am humbled and honored to hold you in that same bright eternal regard.

what a gift true friends are.

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...
