noticing # 68

make a wish

Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.

Rumi

Wildflowers are blooming in my garden. They are pretty, each one in its own way. They are looking for space, sharing the Earth and the sunshine.

noticing # 67

noticing signs of spring
from the blooming on the countertop
to the blossoms on the ground
the rebirth of dormant feelings
keeping awake and alert
the pink moon is up there
bathing my thoughts with clarity
it’s time to let go of the heaviness
and to be light

blue – haiga

blue immensity
from the skies to the oceans
you have all my heart
wondering what is hidden
beyond treasures and despair

it’s time for tanka tuesday, our own choice of words, for today i’ve chosen heart and despair.

i took this photo last week, the sky was so blue, no clouds around. i was waiting outdoors for my son to give me a ride and i was wondering what is beyond all this blue. not about the universe, planets, atmosphere and stuff, but about the mystery, the magic, what is there that we can’t see?

i wasn’t sure if it is appropriate to make a haiga using a tanka, instead a haiku, but i had more words and it wouldn’t fit as haiku, they needed to be written.

hope you have a great day!
