Transient Nature…

It felt good to take a brisk early morning walk and not get drenched in one’s own sweat. I am exceedingly thankful for the changing clime over here.

The temperature is dropping from its oppressive, simmering height, there are more chirpier and happier birds tweeting in the trees, the yellowing, orange leaves are simply beautiful but that also applies to the budding leafs.

Natures transience is a reminder that each new day comes with an abundance of changes and that yesterday’s trouble will give way to today’s peace.

All Fall Down…Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

Ronovan gives us a pair of haiku prompts ‘ Home & Leaves,’ that fall into the seasons’ theme. Here’s my take on it.



Nothing satisfies me like a beautiful evening,

seated at home sipping tea;

watching the leaves wave in the wind.


Now the leaves all come falling down,

tapestry in rustic brown mounds;

nature decorating the yards of many homes.


Homeowners may sometimes feel tired and grumpy,

having to gather endless heaps

of leaves, that continue to fall down.

P.S. We’ll be having our monthly blog party 1st – 2nd of October. I’ll keep you posted.

Banana Peel Caution – Mundane Monday

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.


The difference between a slippery fall and not falling lay in the cute banana peel caution.

I am glad someone placed it there ‘cos I was clicking away happily on my camera and would probably have been the one to land on her backside if not for the fact that some sensible person placed that cute caution to alert passersby to watch out for the spilt liquid.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.


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.
