My new blog - 'Microcosmic'
Centred around my patch in Lancashire
http://www.microcosmic.info/

I'm going to look at themes such as:
Microcosms
Focussing the mind
Appreciating the ordinary

New post - 'Everyday magic'

Haiku of the patch - Microcosmic

I've created four haikus of the patch - one for each season.
http://www.microcosmic.info/2017/10/haiku-of-patch.html

After completing these it occurred to me that there are some pleasing parallels between a haiku and this blog itself.

The haiku writer is limited by structure of the poem. Similarly, in concentrating on a small area of countryside - the patch - the mind is concentrated in the same way.

....Like a baby in a pram, whose universe consists of its mother and perhaps some toys, it seems limited, but this is the canvas upon which the everything plays out – all the sights smells and sounds to feed the baby’s developing brain.

And this is what I’ve found when I’ve concentrated on a ‘patch' - my mind is focussed - I've gone microcosmic!
