“Seeking… Looking far

into the distance; to see

where Life may take me

Today… for Haiku my Heart {Fridays} over at Recuerda mi Corazon with Rebecca, where haiku fans from across the globe join every week to share photos and words. See more HERE.

So this is an image transfer in my Khadi-paper journal, of a boy standing on a rock, looking across a wind-blown lake. I used fineliner pens and Inktense pencils then lots of blended layers over the top. Textures courtesy of Jerry Jones @ Shadowhouse Creations. ♥

It felt like me, looking out, wondering what the next step is and how long I have to wait before I get to take it! Life is like that I find… We never move on until it’s “Time”. When all that we need to “do” is finally done where we are, then we move on. We go with the flow and often it takes us in a different direction to where we thought we were headed. But that’s okay too, because Life is a journey, not the destination, right?

I feel more restless lately, as if the time is drawing near, but I know that I must have patience, keep the Faith and trust in the Universe, because nothing ever happens until the Time is Right…

  1. Indeed, seeking…I like this!!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. It’s a gorgeous piece of art Rosie! I love the ‘feeling’ to it, staring over the water to try and get a glimpse of the future…

  3. may Life take you
    where you need to be,
    where you want to be
    may they be the Same Place…

    {{ loving your art today;
    looks rather like encaustic
    but it is digital?


    seems much safer than my hot*wax

    hummm… }}

  4. The quest to attain or achieve something is eternal and the pathways so many!! Waiting to look and decide on the right path is what I see in this gorgeous art work and the Haiku well describes it!!

  5. It’s good to look forward.

    You’ll find mine here.

  6. I’m in a restless seeking stage right now also, so your journal page speaks to me. It IS all about the journey. Thanks for sharing!

  7. He looks like he’s searching, in the distance.


  8. I like your description of life…yes, we have to be patient until the time is right. But on a day to day basis, I love being able to putter around the house on those special days when I don’t have to be anywhere, and just ‘go where life takes me’ each moment. I never accomplish what I thought I would, but it’s fun to see what does happen…

  9. I looked at this a long time, so much to se and feel!

  10. OMG! This is my first time here. I love your art piece and haiku. I love the colour, texture and the words on the canvas. I like to write on my canvases too.

  11. Lovely haiku of wondering…the art is really nice…I am trying to enjoy where I am on the way to where I am going

  12. Beautiful art piece and poem all about possibilities.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  13. Lovely piece!

  14. dear rosie,
    life called for me way too early and i am home now after a day in the studio. you are the perfect first haiku of my day as i make my journey around to each contributor. sometimes life unfolds one haiku at a time!
    thanks for being here with your beautiful heart.

  15. Very poignant and thought provoking haiku and art. I know that restless feeling that comes when we know change is needed–or near.

  16. I like your sentiment here ‘nothing happens until it is time’, I love the time shared here among friends who show up each week to support one-another through poetry. I have been looking at your digital artwork and am fascinated. It is lovely too to have a haiku-ing heart here on the same island as me!

    Thanks for your supportive words re – my daughter much appreciated.

  17. Rosie…this is a beautiful art piece and so is the poetry. You have given your blog a new look since I was here last….I like it! 😀

  18. Love the piece and the haiku, Rosie ! It is definitely the state that so many of us are living in in our crazy world. Lately, I have been trying to focus less on what is coming and rest, appreciate, soak up all there is right in this moment. It soemtimes helps the restlessness…
    Here’s to the right time coming for you and your desire to know what is next.
    Much love !

  19. Beautiful write an gorgeous illustration!
