Haiku my Heart #33 ~ Lessons for Grace

What the bird told me....
about both pleasure and pain,

the rootstock's the same,
to contemplate sweet pickings,
there is a need to beware,
thorns have sharp edges,
handle petals with great care.

PS ~ my syllable sums have gone a bit awry here,
hey ho, I never was good at maths,
and I have flu ;~)

Multiple entendre' in this. It speaks the truth that most learn by doing. Then we teach others, but they insist on learning by doing. No one listens to such sound sage advice, but there it is, right there in front of us. Wonderful Ms. Foxy.

A lesson to be learned. Love all the images ... pictures and words.

Reminded me of my DD! She admits to always learning everything the hard way... Contributes to making her who she is though!
Lovely words and pictures, thanks for sharing! =)

dear sue,
i am so sorry you have the flu! let your love care for you...stay close to the fragrance of your lovely roses. as for the lessons of petals and thorns,

What you say is so true...and who cares that you took some artistic license! Feel netter soon.
Hope you are feeling better, but in the meantime, you mustered your energy to do a series of beautiful photos and words.

the flu is NO FUN. i would say it qualifies as a major thorn! hope you feel better soon. and i can relate to the bittersweetness of this life with its many troubles... may we always have the grace to see and smell the beauty of the roses, despite their thorns...

Continuum

A Continuum ~> continual sequence of ~> elemental change ~> By far this is the most difficult post written by myself, ever. I have not visited this place for sometime... I have been 'lying low' as an old friend used to put it, not low through depression or anything like that but since my love passed away parts of my known world have passed too. I have difficulty recognizing the landscape around me, I'm lying low so that I can absorb some of the new terrain. I am still quite dizzy, it's going to take some time...
