Sunflower Haiku for Thusday October 23, 2014

My flowers this year
remained tightly closed, did not
grow, not a lone stem.

It was my own fault,
neglected, did not water,
ignored, forgotten.

How often in my personal life do I do this with seeds of potential growth? I start something & jump to the next project, leaving the first unfinished. ‘I’ll finish that later’ I tell myself. I suspect it will not get done. It’s a defect I plan to correct.  I’ll get my desk calender uncovered today so I can mark progress. That is something I have found encouraging in the past. I’ll repeat successful steps, & omit unsuccessful ones. If I’ve done it before, I can do it again.

I don’t need to keep digging up the new growth seed to see what’s happening.  Seeds need darkness, warmth, refreshing water. So do I. So today instead of pushing myself into doing something I don’t want to do, I’ll rest, relax & nurture myself.

A universe in a single drop.

A universe in a single drop.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.

  1. I hope you are having a great restful day, Carolyn. We all need one of these days every so often, just to sit down, relax and refresh the brain. As the saying goes, ‘there’s always tomorrow’ but then that’s just me putting things off again 🙂

  2. Thank you. I appreciate your taking time to comment. I slept a lot & needed it. I’ve been frustrated by not having a bedside laptop. I ordered a new one last night. Hope it will arrive by Monday.

  3. Thank you. Just received a notice it would be here on Tuesday. I’m certainly looking forward to it. Have a great weekend. 🙂
