Collective Beauty…

Each flower knows that its bloom adds to the diverse and collective beauty of the family and that its individuality does not take away its appeal. Jacqueline

Like an African proverb says: A family is like a forest. When you are outside it is dense, when you are inside you see that each tree has a place.

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.

Satisfaction Guaranteed…

Before I dabbled into photography, I never knew that I would find such delight standing behind the lens instead of in front of them. It almost feels like a meditative prayer capturing images. It simply feeds my eye’s and my soul. Jacqueline

Life is teaching me that I don’t need expensive treats to find deep satisfaction. Satisfaction comes from the cheap little thrills of life like a beautiful day, the happy laughter of a child, a pretty flower, a meaningful conversation, a well-deserved cup of brew, a good read etc.

There were times that it was hard to feel satisfaction. Times when raw pain made me wonder if the bleakness would ever lift off, but through writing, I find unquantifiable satisfaction.

It, therefore, goes as no surprise to say that seeing my books in print gives me pure pleasure.

Blooming – Ronovan writes weekly haiku challenge.

I like Ronovan’s cheerful prompt ‘Sing & Flower,’ for this week. We really need as much cheer as possible.

The flowers bloom

and their petals sing

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

Out of the silent breath

If you enjoy my works and would like to do so, you can fuel my creativity with a slice of cake or coffee😉

 

Opening Up!

Wrapped in his loving warmth
she unfurled in phases
her petals opened
in full bloom

Her previous inhibitions
were lost at this stage
painful compressions
forgotten
