Norwegian Dreamscape

Hello Petals,

I'm back from the most beautiful of experiences ever....

As a child I sat spell bound in my classroom listening to the teacher's description of far-away places where  rivers flowed through mountain passes by means of some strange sounding water-way ~  the fjords,

I visited the land of my dreams ~




Norwegian Dreamscape ~

Dawn has me breathless,
awed and silenced, standing in reverence 
I slip seamlessly through

Slipping seamlessly through 

this watery dreamscape
where bliss moments rise and merge with the blue

Bliss moments merging into timeless reflections

in this beautiful dreamscape  I'm suspended, I stare,
I see seven sisters falling over rocky hard places
rushing cascading then vanish in mid ~ air

All bow in respect for the vanishing ladies,

the rocky hard places, 
the Divine hand that hewed
this beautiful dreamscape where 
my spirit is floating like some 
slow motion movie I glide silently though

Like the disappearing ladies after cascading and falling

I turn from these moments as they vanish from view
yet their spirits go on surging forever returning
stirring my memory with each day anew...


I dedicate this poem and post to my lovely friends Cynthia & Dennis Taylor who made this all possible, a dream come true.

Reference ~  Seven Sisters Waterfall





Stay tuned for more images of my Norwegian Dreamscape and the extraordinary way I was totally immersed into the experience!

Post Script ~ I noticed today Friday 29th that this post is my 600th ~ I knew it was special!!

You've woven words together so beautifully, capturing the feel of this dreamscape. I'd like the story behind why the falls are called Seven Sisters.

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

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...
