The Longest Day

The wired butterfly
waiting on the longest day
yearning for release...



To all who have visited but not found me,
I am still here but silently waiting for the right time to fly,
to return and find a 'new normal' after the long sojourn,
hopefully one of 'transformation'
learning from the journey...

I am joining dear Rebecca at
Haiku my Heart
Always a port of call for soft souls seeking solace, love and light...

beautiful. i resonate with yearning for release. with restraint, with wings needing to spread and fly, with the wisdom to know when it's the right time to do so.

good to hear your voice here x
Very poignant photo... A wonderful metaphor - the feeling of entrapment, being pinned down - waiting to be free at last... It will come... Yes, good to hear your voice here once again... Many Heart Hugs :)

Dearest Sue, this haiku and photo... touches me deeply. This type of metamorphosis has no seen blueprint, yet it is there. It resides in each of our souls. Trust it. Trust this waiting that will at some point, become so uncomfortable and small that you will have no choice but to fly. And you will with gorgeous wings spread wide and a heart full of beauty. Much love to you. Always.

A beautiful painting by Mother Nature, captured and caged by human hands. One day, like you, it will fly free. Thank you for sharing this lovely thing. I am awed by it's natural beauty.

Yearning. . . freedom, . . an inner journey. I resonate with these!

my darling precious friend,
appearing here you stun me with your capture of beauty, your admission of vulnerability and your willing open heart that waits for a perfect leap of faith.
i love you sue. thank you for gracing my life with your friendship, your ability to find beauty in mystery and your strength of trust and inner wisdom are gifts that bear wings.

may our wings unfurl together as we both set flight for newness while carrying tender feelings and memories. may our journey bring us new beginnings while helping us to find courage from deep within. and while we travel, may we continue to seek and find beauty all around us. sending you peace, sweet friend.

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…

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...
