Feelings #2

Yesterday my feelings were fragile,
we had planned a break by the ocean,
but had to come home early ~
I was not feeling well.
Today I had a ~~>


I had intended to draw whilst away, so not to be thwarted
I got my pencils and paper out this morning and
started some observational drawing.
But do you know what? 
It wasn't 'floating my boat'.


I knew exactly where my boat would float though and, do so for hours ~
yes my joy floats right here on this old computer screen,
I load some images from my picture files
then I am a happy bunny,
I play and play all day,
my calling you
might say.....

Flapping my Wings

My love has 'man flu' so I'm grounded,
my butterfly wings are being prepared for flight.
Just as soon as his eyes are dry,
we'll be up, up and away!

Our butterfly wings ~
free, outstretched, dry & weightless,
glinting in the sun.

How does your garden grow?

My husband has oodles of energy, he tends to get a lot done in the garden,
whilst I'm always lacking in energy and find myself feeling overwhelmed.
To be honest a handkerchief garden would suit me better, unlike the two acres we have!
So the bulk of gardening gets done by my love,
which is fine since he was the one who pushed to live here!

The only problem is he's a bit of a top surface gardener, a little hoeing
here, tweaking the edges there, all the while beneath the surface those invasive type plants are
sending their spider web roots ever outward and our garden is fast becoming a jungle!

Yesterday whilst my love was away for the weekend, I suddenly had an urge to garden,
an energy rush.  I surprised and surpassed myself in his absence and without his well intentioned
"you'll never get those roots out of there" advice.  ;~)

At the end of the day I went indoors feeling wonderful at my new-found strength and vigour,

I couldn't help but analyse ~

To Be Seen

The gift of seeing
is precious like no other,
thanks for seeing me!


If there is anything more precious than really being seen, then tell me about it....
To be seen and loved for who you are is such a soul affirming joy.
I feel so privileged to have friends like this...
My heart is overflowing with gratitude,
I'll haiku forever...

The Visitor

It feels a bit like a dream now, surreal even, the water seems so lonely now she's gone.
Although she was ours for only six days altogether we began to think of her as family.
Salina we called her, it was the name of my grandmother who I'd never known,
I thought it had a graceful air about it and seemed fitting.

Five mornings in a row I made my way to the water's edge crust in hand,
Salina on first sight of me glided across for breakfast as though we'd always done this.
I was ecstatic, our very own swan sailing serenely on the water, an idyllic country cottage scene.

The lad from across the way raised some concern in our minds pointing out that our pond may not be large enough for her to take flight should she need to.  At this point I began to realise I was starting to worry for her welfare just like you do for family!  Was there enough natural food in the pond and round about for her nourishment, was she stranded on the pond, lonely?

Yesterday morning my love announ…
