"Let's go round again"

One more cup of chai
One more celestial spin
and Haiku~d'Art
What I'm thinking ~
I hope you noticed the quote by Cindy Sherman in the sidebar above?
I have decided to keep it as a reminder to myself and all who visit here, to just 'let go'.
I was struggling to find a haiku this morning to match my image, which is unusual for me!
But, I was and this has been typical of words in general here on FMB lately.
So I thought to myself  'just let go Susan' and I did, sometime later 'voila' there it was fully formed, again!
Now whether this is a good or bad form of haiku is not my concern,
but I need to feel that it is right for me because ~
it is from my heart
goes to the hearts of all those sharing the three year summer solstice celebration
of gathering over at our beloved Rebecca's Place ~

Haiku my Heart
Recuerda mi Corazon

We are on the same wavelength today, Sue. Listening to that wise, beautiful heart has to be the key, don't you think ?
The happiest of summer solstices to you, Brilliant Heart !

i especially love this haiku. love the idea of a celestial spin.

and that's a great quote too. that's how my authentic art works for me - discover what the painting/etc wants to reveal.

I think it is when we stop struggling that the creative juices flow much better. The photo and haiku found each other!
Lovely! Yes, discovering what's already there! Letting it speak/emerge. 'Letting go' can feel *so* good. :) Just letting yourself dissolve, getting out of the way and seeing what emerges on its own, whether in writing or art/photography.

bringing messages of peace
but mostly of TRUST

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
