Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.
The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.
When I sat on the park bench,
she floated to the ground
right before my feet.
I felt like stepping on her,
to feel the crinkle of the dry fallen leaf
under my bare toes.
Seeing her difference,
I paused and took note;
my mind saying, let her be.
Don’t squash her into the ground,
allow her to live her dreams ,
even if they be for another day or two.
For all, I may know,
she’s been dying to lie down,
tired of hanging on limbs
that made her sway up and down.
Just let her be;
said my mind.
Let her have her peace.
I wrote this as I watched the leaves, my mind dwelling on many little things.
