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 see a Raven, I think of Edgar Allan Poe and his horror stories.

The raven is the largest bird of the crow family. This family is called Corvidae and the old word for a raven Corbie. In mythology, the raven is often connected with death, which is why Poe chose it for his poem.

  1. Beauty in the mundane
    Can be found in many ways
    The imagination contains
    Sights, sounds, images, words that say
    Descriptions of the divine, the artistic, the creative
    Bathing each mind’s image in colors, textures, meaning
    If you but close your eyes, you will see all the relative
    Pictures of your heart, psyche, soul seeming…
    Lost, hidden, forgotten, but au contraire?
    The scene bubbles up to the surface
    If you but search within … if you but dare
    To see beyond the darkness and reverse
    The memories of the mundane
    That have captured your heart in refrains
    Of luscious strains of music or spoken muses
    Yes, I see; I’ve seen; The beauty of the ruse.
    –Deborah A. Bowman, 5/28/17
