Confrontation


Sometimes we go into hiding, pulling our heads under the blanket when dark night creatures seem so close, we lie low and wait...  And yet in the waiting and being with our fears something new ascends out of that place,  for we have visited ourselves and discovered a beautiful thing ~ we have held strong.
Fear did not bring us to the floor, we stood our ground in the dark,
slowly lifting the cover, confronting fear eye to eye.

"Keep walking, though there's no place to get to.
Don't try to see through the distances, that's not for human beings. 
Move within, but don't move the way fear makes you move."

~ Rumi

I love this Sue! So authentic! "...in the waiting and being with our fears something new ascends..." I was dealing with strong emotions this past weekend as well... Just being with it all, riding the waves... Sometimes that's all we can do. Am glad you emerged safely :) Heart Hugs...

my darling one,
please know my heart envelopes you as i place myself beside you to weather the storm.
i believe in you and in your wise words....to cherish all our parts, the bright and the dark, the whole and the broken, the fragile and the strong is to know love, to have compassion, to live fully.

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!

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 …

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...
