Tinkling

This thing called grief, what is it?    Is it something to fight and conquer or subdue like it's an enemy wanting to hold you down, keep you in it's grip, stifle the life out of you? This is how I have been feeling, like I am held down and captive from fully engaging with life, and yet, there is this ~>
Tinkling, there is this faint awareness of something out there, or perhaps within, or maybe both but it is always there wanting to connect... It is both magical and mystical in nature and I know it can become tangible, these days it is mostly elusive but as long as it calls to me I know I am alive! It is somewhat like the siren calls of mystical mermaids in Greek mythology, beautiful and alluring but perhaps with a hint of risk attached. I have some clues where this thing dwells it can be found in the filtered light coming through some open door or window ~>
Today I came across this beautiful video through an open window, a chance meeting in my life, a coincidence, although some mystics would say there are no coincidences, that everything, every juncture is as it is supposed to be! I'm not sure but what I am sure about is the resonance I had with this conversation. I do not personally know the women chatting but I felt like I was right there with them nodding as they talked about the healing process of creativity how it has the power to transform. It touched me deeply in so many ways, I could relate to this, to past times when creativity gave me a safe place to empty myself while walking the dark paths that straddle life. 
You would be receiving a gift if you were to listen in on the conversation, especially if you need to bring painful hidden feelings to the surface...

The Sensory Light  ~ A creative outpouring for Haiku my Heart ~> 

I hear soft tinkling

drifting with sensory light

whisperer of love
  

I see love and trust

holding hands through the ether

a global embrace


Global embrace feels

love's ever~ quickening pulse

a sisterly vibe


The sisterhood vibe

is spreading love and trust through

a window of words


The window of words

floats with the sensory light

permeating Peace

Joining Rebecca and the circle of friends at ~

Dearest Sue... joining hands with you in this circle of sensory light, looking through the windows of our hearts... thank you for these gifts that you share, they are balm for this time of trying to understand these senseless acts of hurt to each other, for we are truly one... and this thread of creativity... I think it holds the key. Yes. I do. XO

I listened to Flora and Shiloh earlier in the week and wholeheartedly agree. Using our creativity with intention brings healing light to soothe our sorrows.

dearest friend,
may we all send our love light out into this world through our thoughts, words and actions. every moment is a new chance to choose peace. to believe and hold clear intentions for every ones highest and best good. healing is a constant journey. i am so grateful to walk this path right beside you-even though there is an ocean between us-i feel nothing separates us or our love for the world.

Sue...I so enjoyed this post and thank you for introducing me to Flora Bowley's site. I didn't know it at the time, but I turned to a camera to deal with my father's Alzheimer's...and so I know firsthand the healing that creativity brings. Thank you, Thank you. And I adore your image!!

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...
