They all Know...

It is one whole year since my love departed.
This place looks pretty much the same without him except the crows are missing,
they seemed to have disappeared about the same time as he did as I recall.
The crow family and my love had a special relationship they
always hung out together by the old stones up stream...


The House Martins didn't show up either this year I think they got word from the crows.
Oh and the frogs decided not to spawn in the still pool under the bridge, for the first time ever!
But, the Wisteria has blossomed like she has never blossomed before!
I think she is giving me a show stopping finale for she knows the time has come...

I'm just waiting for the final go-ahead and then ~
I must say goodbye to this old cottage, these old stones
that have sheltered me for almost sixteen years
I must let go and Trust that there will be
a new chapter for me,
a new beginning
and
that I will survive,
alone, but not lonely!

Ahhhh - so sweet... Yes, all of Nature seems to know when it's time to move in order to survive, to find new places in which to thrive... I hope you get to spread your wings and fly soon... OXC

may the creatures accompany and guide you as you step out on this next journey and may you always remember you do not walk alone, friend.

how gorgeous is that wisteria! n of my favourite flowering plants. there is much symbolism attached to this plant, but a few of them are; love, releasing burdens, and immortality.

Oh my sweet Sue
one year
and you are still standing...lungs filled with the breath of a new day
so much more awaits you
and I know your love wants you to step into it as he smiles and watches the unfolding of you
you are rich with so much...even with the grief because the grief says there was love alive ... love that still remains till you breathe you last breath...for you loved and were loved...rich, yes, so rich

lonely, but never alone....Amen

love and light

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…
