Haiku ~ 9/11/14


Beautiful blue sky

a reminder of sad times

can’t let heart go there




I wrote this months ago and I didn’t know if I would post it.  Today I woke and I was still on the fence.  I drew an Angel Card and my eyes opened wide when I saw what it was…”FREEDOM!” (Healing with the Angels..Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D)

Card meaning:  The Angels guide you to freely express your true thoughts and feelings with love.

So, I post this in honor of all humanity.  I post it for the lives lost not only on that day, but on every day where man decides that killing will erase fear.  And I pray!  I pray that the truth…that love is the only antidote to fear…becomes known by all!!  My heart really hurts….

  1. “… a reminder of sad times” – on september 11th it was the same blue sky as in your beautiful picture. Each of us remember very clearly we he or she was doing then… “Angel Cards”… “Freedom”, meaningful sign! You should tell us more about these cards Lorrie! Have a nice day 🙂 and much love to you ♥♥
    -and thanks again for your funny comment about the gecko you risked your life for 🙂

    1. Hello dearest!! Thank you…and yes…everyone remembers where they were. It was a very sad day. But thank you for always being there for me!

      The Angel Cards are a deck…that have messages. I really don’t know much about the tarot so I don’t know if they are similar….i suppose maybe you use them the same. Like today, I was not sure about posting this so I mediated on the question and set an intention that the Angels would make the answer clear by the card I (blindly) chose. When I picked the Freedom card…considering the new tower’s name is “The FREEDOM Tower” I thought I had the answer! Plus the lovely words made me realize that I wanted the post to be about love.

      And I’m so happy you enjoyed my gecko story!! I was quite the sight to see!! 🙂 Much love!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. I have a tarot deck, but it’s a bit complex…I need a book to interpret, and morever I only use the “major arcana”… which is a bit… unorthodox…with tarot! your angel cards sound great and easier. And very fair! Take care 🙂 ♥♥♥


        1. Yes dear Fre’de’ric Georges!! 🙂 I don’t know much about either set of cards. I just know that the Angel cards are very supportive, yet informative. I have not had them long…and I have not used them much. But every time I have used them…it would appear that the Angels are sending messages 🙂 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Love heals. May we, as bloggers and humans, spread this love in ever-widening circles…..to a world in need.


  3. This haiku was perfection. I love how ‘love is the only antidote to fear’ fits so perfectly with the second and third lines. Lovely! 🙂
    Hope you are doing well, Lorrie! ❤


  4. People like yourself, Lorrie, hurt deeply because you feel so deeply! It’s in your personality “DNA.” There are so many sad things about 9/11/2001. However, there was so much kindness offered in so many ways from person to person on that day as well.

    While we remember the fallen, let us also recall those who rose up in a time of great need…

    The True Light


    1. Simply beautiful…thank you for adding this. Yes…many, many people dropped all their judgment and helped their fellow man…it was the beautiful part of the tragedy. I am so happy you brought it up. May your day be filled with love an peace! ❤

  5. I was such a beautiful blue sky that day – a beautiful blue sky and a beautiful crisp day. I wish I could “not let my heart go there” – but it will always be there. Such a touching and wonderful Haiku. ❤ ❤ Light and Love. ❤


    1. I remember!! All of it!! You were closer…we were in NJ. The sky was brilliant…but the day turned so dark….

      Much love to you!! Keep up your energy…make sure you are taking care of yourself as well…you need to be in good shape to be the caretaker!!! ❤ ❤

  6. Always go with what your heart is yearning to share! What a powerful lesson for us all Lorrie. ❤
    We don't need to know if they are ready for it… can take … or may not get it. Expressing what our heart and soul is yearning for is our path to freedom and our gift to others 🙂

    1. Thank you, Val. You really offered beautiful wisdom here and I am so grateful!! I understand what you are saying…and I suppose that my heart really wanted to say something about this anniversary. But it has been a subject that is hard for many to talk about. Thank you for caring…much love to you! ❤ ❤

    1. It was wonderful, Lisa! I didn’t know how the message would be conveyed…I don’t know the cards very well. But I believed that I would “know.” When I saw it was the “FREEDOM” card I had a huge smile!! Hope you are well Lisa! ❤


    1. 😉 Thank you dear Misifusa!!! I am happy I posted as well…but thought I needed to lighten it up a little today. Very emotional day yesterday. Can you believe I picked the “Freedom” card!!! Love to you…I think about every day 🙂
