"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

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.

a feeling shared.

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.

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...
