haiku my heart - five-petal blue rose




The cosmic circle,
Mary's sacred space,
Holds the pure blue rose.

  1. Wonderful colours
    and very sweet words
    make this reader happy.

    I am still led from your comment on my blog to your review blog, which makes commenting here a little difficult for me.

  3. When I opened your blog, I felt as if I were embarking on a cosmic journey. Which of course, (though I forget, become earthbound with concerns), I am! Thank you for the reminder to find and connect to my own little patch of blue...

  6. It's a lovely idea. I think that you were trying to capture the idea that the blue rose is like the cosmic mandala encompassed by a circle in the same way as the buddha's mandala is yes? Only this is Mary's space. It's a lovely idea. And that space is the heavens? beautiful haiku and great picture Margaret.

  8. Is that your tattoo? It's really pretty. I'm thinking of getting a 5th tattoo of a dragonfly with roses wrapped around it. xoxo

  9. I think I could get lost for hours, if not eternities, gazing into that magic incandescent blue ball: representative of the sacred circle, blue mantled Marion, sky-reflecting life-giving waters, our precious Mother Earth, the infinite blue of the skies that float our dreams.

    I'm not generally a tatt fan but the blue flower is sweet and discreet. Love the pink toenails--so summery!

  10. :^) margaret, so many comments on the blue but only louciao and i on your sensuous pink nailpolish! (probably everyone else is appropriate and then there's me) ( found the whole shot mesmerizing)

    i have never seen such vibrant colors on a tatoo. is it permanent?

    you are fascinating, margaret.

    xoxo

  11. Thanks, Friko!
    You know, I am finally realizing what you're saying about the defunct blog opening up instead of this one--will work on it. Thanks for letting me know.

  12. Thanks, Choices! Maybe you could create a Blue Manx character? :)

  13. Hi Stickup~ It feels as though you are slowly finding yourself back to YOU, through the old neighborhoods, the mother of whom you are part, the guides in nature and in humanity. And then your journey takes you farther...

  14. Thanks, Snap! Blue does have a magical symbolism as well as the circle and the star...

  15. Thanks, Kim! I hope you have beautiful blue skies over the beautiful blue lake!

  16. Thanks, MMT! Blue does say so many things in all its shades--Mother Mary, Vishuddi for the throat chakra, and turquoise, my favorite...

  17. Thanks, Cheryl! I just saw your pretty toenails with the hibiscus decoration--love it! I live in Upper Saddle River, NJ, but originally hail from Cottonwood (near Redding), CA--not far from you, no?

  18. Oh, Noelle, that is so great! Sometimes the haiku form makes one's message a little cryptic, don't you think? A lot of associations expressed at once: Mary's flower is the rose; making it a five-petal rose makes it a star; Mary's color is blue, but there isn't really a truly blue rose. You know how one color in the spectrum is always missing from each flower? For example, there are no red iris, but there are blue iris; there are red roses but no blue ones. In a flawless, circular world (yes, a mandala), Mary's purity holds a space for the five-petaled blue rose. There is also the image of Mary's blue mantle embroidered with a star. Thanks, Noelle~

  19. Hi, Diana! If you mean the tattoo, that is a temporary one I got at the shore--I'm determined to go back down again and have it done again... In six weeks you'll be ready for one, too! Love!

  20. Oh, Marion, you definitely have to get a tattoo of a dragonfly draped in roses! It's so you! The dragonfly ethereal yet strong; the rose Mary's flower, compassion. You could wear rose water scent with it!
    That's a temporary tattoo I'm wearing, but I plan to have it re-done soon. Permanence is a little scary: it took me forty years to get my ears pierced!

  21. I love how you saw this, Lynne! How life-giving blue is, even down to Mary's blue mantle and outpouring of life (incidentally often portrayed with a five-point star).
    The tattoo is temporary, but I really love wearing it! I'm going to have it spray-painted again while the boardwalk is still up and running! And I enjoy the seasonal sandals and flip-flops, so that explains the pedicure! (When you think about it, winter is so much easier, isn't it? Not so much leg-shaving, etc.)

  22. Thanks, kj, for noticing all those girlie girl details. Fun, aren't they? (even though I have to admit I also love the comfy zone of sweats and socks...). I think it is the bright sun that is making the blue rose almost turquoise. And it is temporary. (What if I hate it in two years?;)

  23. i love your spirit... when i have my pedicure and my toenails shine i am lifted up on wings... now that pink is a pink that shines bright in the night.... as night as that blue sphere... imagining a rose of that hue i close my eyes.. no longer do i have to imagine

  24. It's beautiful how our soft, feminine side can awaken so much joy in us--by shimmering pink toenails, a blue gazing ball, the vision of a blue rose... Thanks for feeling that, too, Pieceofpie.

  25. LOVE your blue rose Margaret! That's prettier than a tattoo!! And, although I'm not usually a fan of music on blogs, I really enjoyed the Carla Bruni track!!

  26. Thanks, Rosie! I was happy with the sparkling blue rose, too! I know what you mean about the playlist. I wonder if there's some way it could run in the off position; then the visitor could pick and choose a song or whether or not to have music...
