Let yourself fall…

A Haiku for the Maple Seed :


I let my Self fall

Trusting that where I fall is

My true place to grow.



It is a spectacular Fall day here in New Hampshire today.

Even right here in my backyard !

Check out this Maple !


I love how the tree colors are reflected in the window of my neighbor’s garage :



What do you see in the reflection?

It looks kind of Chagall-esque to me.

A weird horse head below with an angel holding a baby above ?

Speaking of art that is open for interpretation…


Here is my latest journal page.

I actually only have one page left to complete in this journal.

I have been adding to it for almost two years.

This page was created by just letting paint and ink and black gesso tell me where it want to go.

I am digging the white doodles…a little like the crazy thoughts I have in my brain sometimes…


Not the happiest of pages. My woman with scars looks like she is dealing with a lot.

Like so many of us in this world.

But I think she still sees the beauty…


I know I do.

Wishing you a day filled with trust, beauty and some good haiku !

Big Love, Beautiful Ones !

Until you mentioned the scars aspect, all I saw was beauty and colour!!! What a choice to have...bring it or receive it...I say do both! I love the artist in you Kimmy! Creation at its best!
Love you Beautiful, precious one!.

I know the feeling which you put on that page... it's a strange combination of 'wanting to kick or lay back' and it usually turns out into 'nothing' (with me, that is..) I love the lady with the scars... it's about scars lately, I guess. Thanks for stopping by on my blog today, your words 'did good to me' (don't know the english phrase...) Enjoy your weekend my friend!

Sherry Smyth said...

I like that E.B. White quote and I love your interpretation of it!

As for that reflection...I see some monster head in the bottom of the window..with a big eye on top of it's head. Kinda spooky!!!

Have a beautiful weekend beautiful soul! xo

with ribbons in her hair--
riding a grinning horse

I really like this post, My Queen. Who do you know who is not dealing with a lot. We all have those times, and for some of us they go on and on. I like the uncertainty in her eyes that is at the same time is just a hard time that will pass, is what it feels like to me. I too like the doodles! Have a wonderful weekend, Blessings and love, O

Friends seem to pop in
Just when you needed them to
Nice to have around

Thanks for your visit today. I needed that. xoxo

I cannot tell you that I always think in a positive manner, but today I am. I believe that it is a happier place when we are doing something about righting the wrongs our hearts tell us about. It is then possible to have a great day and deal with what we feel we need to. Making that choice is hard, not so much the doing.

I see a large killer whale in the bottom pane of glass. I saw that before your horse prompt, but now I can see that elongated horse head too.
Your haiku is wonderful and so true. We all really fall where we do. We might think we control it, but I feel we don't. To 'grow' there, is what we must do.

Took me a while to find you today. Somehting about that link over at Rebecca's. I figured it out, but it took me all day. I never got an "A" in Pays attention to detail.


Chel said...

I know I say this pretty much every day, but your blog posts make me so happy- they make me think and make me *feel* and make me want to create and be and explore and they make me TRUST in the beauty of the world. Thank you, thank you!

From a distance I see a bird. Lovely seeing your colors. I love that about fall. Your journal page is awesome too. Your pages always amaze me with their brillance. Have a wonderful weekend.

Dawn Elliott said...

I adore the dual meaning of your haiku today, as well as the fall colors out your back door. The snapshots are absolutely stunning!

What a spectacular haiku! Our trees haven't given up many leaves yet, it is odd so late in October. But I will say I have enjoyed this warmer than usual autumn. It's the dark mornings that are making me woozy. Love the quote on the beautiful journal page. Indeed, planning a day can be challenging. Riley and I are having lunch with Mom tomorrow and I will be passing her the goods. Have a mahvelous weekend!

Hi Kim,
I'm late to blogging, I was out of town. Your trees are gorgeous and I do see the angel and horse head - very cool! I like your journal page, too. What kind of white pen do you use?

Rosie said...

I want you to enjoy the world Kim, whilst making tiny improvements where you can. You have so much to give...
LOVE the journal page - her scars are such pretty colours.
In the window's reflection I see a T-Rex below a tree where bright birds hide from it...!
Have a wonderful weekend, bright soul! xo

laurie said...

thanks for sharing the photos of your fall colors with us - we don't get that down here in the desert southwest. your journal page captured me for several moments while i thought about the quote and your woman sifting through the stuff of life.

elizabeth said...

I know I do too.

I see a rooster!

priti.lisa said...

One of my most favorite quotes!
Oh Kim, sometimes you feel just like a twin to me.
Beautiful post. As Ever. Love, Lisa

Gollywobbles said...

I love your haiku for this post, and I saw a reflection of a horse before reading what you wrote! Amazing! Have a magical day my queen.

Marcie said...
