Haiku my heart


Abundant Basket
emptied in January 
as new growth begins
~

An empty basket:
 has room for infinite possibilities.
reminds us of those less fortunate we are.
is capable of becoming
represents pure potentiality
As you empty your basket remember to share its bounty

  1. thanks ever-so,
    once again,
    for the gift of your Wisdom!

    as i empty my closets
    this week
    i feel
    light
    and free..
    giving things away
    even some treasure
    flying
    to new places...


    {{ do you need anything?
    a book?
    a movie?
    a packet of seeds?
    do let me know...}}

  2. Yes, yes, I'm emptying mine too, some of my things are almost new, so thinking on ebay? Perhaps not, of more good to some charity shop I think!

    Nice reminder,

  3. Empty baskets are part of my life. I don't hold on to very much. In fact, I give most of my art away. The Elders tell me that the poorest in the clan was the spiritual Elder. I like this wise Haiku message.

    Peace

  4. I love the colours and shapes. All different and yet they fit well together.

  5. Love the colours here. I think I have the same pot pourri.
    Less is more, so true, so true!

  13. Yes, I love the idea of releasing things back into the universe. It does make the soul lighter and it creates a vacuum that is filled once again by something better. There is always Love.
