A Friend Indeed

A friend of mine popped round this afternoon,
she took me by surprise.
I was feeling rather 'fragmented', 
scattered even if you know what I mean?
I felt like I had come apart in so many places,
doubting if I could put myself back together!
This friend of mine has a special talent
developed through her own life's school of sometimes hard knocks! 
She's a dab hand at recognising all the jumbled up parts of you,
like the pieces of a jigsaw and she seems intuitively to know
how to fit them back together again. 
Confidently she identifies each of the positive features
 gently nudging them one by one back into place
until the whole body starts to regain its appearance,
its former beautiful, colourful self!
It is wonderful to have a friend with such talent,
it amazes me how she always calls
at just the right time,
always brings back the best of me!
I am grateful for such a friend.

"in love lies the seed of our growth. the more we love the closer we are to the spiritual experience." paula coelho

the longer i live the more clearly i see that love is all that matters. that being in the force of love, keeping each other in the force of love...holding everything and everyone in the light of love, is what is needed.

i am eternally grateful to be graced by the light of your love. i am humbled and honored to hold you in that same bright eternal regard.

what a gift true friends are.

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.

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
