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.

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...
