Contemplating the Mary Journey

She could have been anyone's
daughter,
sister,
friend
or
lover...



the details I could not say....
for she was travelling alone like the rest of us,
on a journey to somewhere, this we had in common
and, she was alone with her thoughts too like me
it seemed, heavy or light I could not be sure,
but for sure both would play their part on
some scale sooner or later, and like
me and you she would
need a mother
for,
we all do.

Mornings with Mary

my dear friend, i love your image...so universal and immediate, the thoughts of a woman's heart playing out against the moving backdrop of life. and so it is for us all. at once hidden and exposed, our inner most yearnings, the hard work of being reborn every day.
your compassion rings out and touches me deeply. aren't we all sojourners of the heart? at once mother, and yet still child. at once healer, and also the healed.
xoxo

a stunning image, dredging into the heart of her stillness! I think our need for a mother never leaves us.

Hello

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




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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…

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 …
