Photo Challenge Round-Up: DEEP

dsc_0139

Nearby the pool I posted for ‘DEEP’ is another deep rock pool which I found as a child when I was with my Grandfather. It seemed to go down and down forever then and had an eel swimming in it. That memory was enhanced about 20 years ago when I was on a course with Leo Rutherford who founded Eagle’s Wing. During one of meditations to the sound of the drum, I was taken on a magical journey into this pool which inspired my poem

Journey Into Now

And joining in with this week’s Haiku Challenge from Ronovan which asks for the two words, Miss and Past to be incorporated into a Haiku:

Mandala calm gone

Time flying past, way too fast

I miss quiet days

Added 16.March.  Ronovan writes a review of each Haiku in the challenge, which I really look forward to reading. It adds to the fun and the connection with the other writers. Here it is:

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Think A good piece. I learned something with this one. I learned what a Mandala was. This was a Google moment. I love Google moments. Peaceful. I like it.

Dancing

A little sea sprite danced into the Abu Dhabi creative meanderings

a frolic of shells!

In emails from home I knew my daughter was having a challenging time with her amazingly creative, energetic, frolicsome, imaginative, demanding, mischievous trio of joyful delight! At 6, 4 and 19mths, her children are delightful, and juggling the needs of the whole family can be exhausting!!!!

It was hard to be so far away and know how much she could have done with a helping hand. So I sent her this picture of the sea sprite to dance into her day and hopefully give her a boost of sunny playful energy……..

along with a little visualisation/meditation – so if anyone is feeling a bit lack lustre, or is feeling at the effect of the grim weather we have been having on both sides of the Atlantic – she is happy for me to share her visualisation just in case it helps:

Close your eyes, deep breath, I am sending you a dose of warm and healing sunshine.
Can you feel it all through every cell of your body, down to your tippy toes and tingling in your finger tips.
Add a hug of jacuzzi bubbles softening to the sound of gently lapping waves on white sands, with sparkles of joy and warm oceans of love ………….

feel a bit better?
