Haiku my Heart #11 Words

Words abandoned me,
they wouldn't come out to play!
I wait in silence.

You hum it,
I'll play it :-)
My prediction:
Your mind is about to defrost and become fluent again.

Ms. Foxy... The photo is great. I'm looking and looking and trying to read the words. (The bottom one stull has me stymied) But your haiku words are definitely not as they appear. They are poetic and smooth. No way did they abandon you. Very nice.

Spadoman - The words in the photo of the book say 'I'm waiting for the moment' - I know it well as I was spending lots of time with Mum when she was working on this book, wish you could see it all, it's beautiful.

Mum - The moment is coming, I just know it xxx

This has a lovely feel and rhythm, and surely you're teasing us? (which is something that I would never do....). You're as eloquent as always.

Nice image too.
I'm not waiting for the moment. It passed me by many moons ago.

Have a nice day my friend, Boonie

I don't quite believe your statement, you did too well in spite of it.

I love those frozen trousers on the line in the previous post!

I love your haiku today! Playful. :) I've been reading but haven't had much time to comment, I want you to know I've been around though! Kat

wonderful! I haven't had time to write haiku lately (grad school is a harsh task master!), but I've been enjoying reading what others have written

your heart is willing
the best word waits, unfolding...
sweet is the slowness
This is stunningly beautiful. The image and the letters have the quality of something from the Victorian era. I love the ribbon around and the letters look as if they were written in some kind of illuminated wax which I think I have seen in another post of yours. It is lovely and I think that silence always has its place. Your haiku is perfect. By the way that is the most I have ever seen Boonie say in a response, so you must have done something right!

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 Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

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'
