My Silken Altar

The reflective image below is one taken of my south facing window, 
which is more like an altar to me because of the ever changing light
that allows for embracing the moments of silent connection and praise.
I take many photographs from this window as I marvel at the sun's energy 
to illuminate or in this case reveal through shadows and reflections.
This image has been sitting in my file for sometime,
it has a hidden message for me that 
I knew would one day surface...
  

Heart broken open
by the mystery of you...
love stitches together.

 Gentle love rides pain
like silken thread slips through jute
spring balm for raw edge.

Stitch with silken love
the polarities of life 
embrace the mystery...


Sending to Rebecca for healing...

Embrace the mystery - I would love to... even if sometimes I do not have any idea what I am doing.

Lovely imagery. Beautifully done!

Beautiful, this image, and your words, the thought in my mind that it is always changing...a palette to place your yourself alongside the changing light.

Sacred moments when the light moves and you experience it.
Your words so deeply moving Sue... Love, Love, Love... Yes. Broken open and embracing the Mystery. We will spend our lives doing that for sure! And what a lovely altar - soft and welcoming. Just beautiful. Glad to be sharing in your wonderful experience... Heart Hugs...

Oh! this spoke to me! I often take photos and don't know the reason for weeks or months until they decide to reveal themselves to me ! Beautiful poem!http://wabisabipoet.wordpress.com/2014/03/05/wispy-dreams/

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...
