The Light of Haiku

Nothing's black & white
all a matter of shading
as filtered by light...



I love a bit of black and white, clear cut lines of thought, no clutter, yes this is appealing to me at the moment!  
Wanting to see my way clearly through the hazy outlines of reality, the grey shaded areas of dense not knowing!
I should have known life is not really like that at all but a multiplex of every shade imaginable! 
What I need is the light of wisdom to discern!
To qualify the preceding! I'm feeling lost and overwhelmed by my current situation! I have put all of my eggs into one basket by concentrating my efforts on finding a new home for myself at the expense of my spiritual creative practice! Today I decided to take stock and bring myself here to the place where I know that losing myself in the moment with creative exploration will yield results which on this occasion was a black and white image based haiku.
Being in a place of not knowing can be scary and being human I've had the black and white mentality that when I'm settled in a new home everything will fall into place!  But in reality I know this is not the case and as for settled I know there is really no such thing! And so I am learning as I go....

Lovely Haiku! Yes, the "shadow places" are hard to move through - but they are messengers too. In meeting them they will bring wisdom too. You are an artist of a new pathway through life, and your canvas is all that you are feeling at this moment - those hazy, dense grey areas - AND the brilliance of your creative psyche to cut through them :) <3

I just love what Mystic Meandering has to say...and I so totally agree. It's so hard going through those shadows...but oh the lessons we learn.
