Haiku my Heart #24 Stretching

Stretching the body
and stretching the perception,
=  flexibility
Yesterday I fell and grazed my knee 
in the market place,
I got to think about my
 yoga practice,
had my stance been more
the damage could have been much worse,
makes you think!

Recuerda mi Corazon

Ah to have such long graceful fingers! And flexibility -- now there's a good thing.
Dear Poet...keep stretching your perception!

it is so humbling to fall. (sadly i know too well)
so glad you know how to yield.

welcome to the weekend all dressed in Spring!

Love your play with shadow and light.
I hope your knee heals quickly. I had several falls a few years ago, and my knees aren't the same anymore. It's what we call age...
I love these graceful silhouettes as well. I think that they must be healing for you after such a fall. I wonder if this lack of rigidity that you have discovered is lapping into the corners of other areas of your being because here, you look so deeply at peace ~ a newly discovered risen self.

Yes, rigidity doesn't help much.. a good message here..

Nice one, foxy.
And pertinent.
Tricky chaps, knees.

Stretching certainly helps.
Really great post, Sue! The elongated images with the "stretching" in the haiku--very creative. I love yoga for the insights it gives to both mind and body, how they're related. Massage your feet so it works all your points and makes the sore muscles feel better! xxox

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'

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
