Juicy Summer


Sweet juice of summer
drip, drip, drip, quenches my life
lifting high my heart

This is one of those years to remember we are actually having a summer,
we have had more than two consecutive weeks of sunshine!
Today begins the folk festival next to our cottage,
we usually go in wellington boots but this year I think it is safe to wear sandals!

BTW
Cupcake baking in progress,
bouncy castle to arrive soon
along with party animals ~
we have a 'jungle' theme going on!

My buzz word for today is b-r-e-e-z-y
I need it first for the heat
secondly for calm ;~)

I remember last year at this time as well. Not summery at all. When I think about how hot and humid it is right now in Wisconsin, I imagine that drip, drip drip of some kind of juice cooling my body to be waves of cool water.
Very glad you are upbeat and enjoying life. Have fun at the festival and eat a cupcake, or two, for me.

Much Peace sent your way Ms. Foxy

You are having a fun time with a lot of breeze sun and light!! Can sense your buoyant mood!! We on the other side of the globe are done with the scorching summer heat and sweating and enjoying the welcome rains!! Funnily we here don't walk in wellies, they even stopped selling them, instead we all wear sandals and bellies specially made for the monsoons!! :) How things vary in different regions!!

Love that opening line: "Sweet juice of summer"!

It almost makes me appreciate this torrid time of year.

Almost.

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…
