Having Delightful Conversations…

1-36

I saw the telephone sitting on a display table in a posh shop.

It’s just so pretty that I want to own one and go back to the times of using such proper phones.

Where you would sit down to take a call, cradling the phone on your lap or by the side stool.

We would certainly have delightful conversations 🙂

“Beautiful Poetry of Life and Love.” Amanda

Out of the silent breath

Pure and sweetness…

When I saw the prompt ‘pure’ for The Daily Post Photo Challenge, my mind drifted to these things:

❤ The lovely handbook below, ‘Blessings from heaven,’ is a beautiful gift from Ann Hayes.Blessings from heaven

She’s a lovely friend of mine back in Houston. She surprised me with it at the George Bush International airport on the day we were leaving the US for our move to Dubai. I hadn’t expected to see her, nor the blessing of the book and I always keep it with the Rosary, a gift from my brother-in-law’s trip to Jerusalem.

Though these may seem like simple things, they speak of pure thoughtfulness and sweetness to me.  I never forget such gestures.

❤ There’s nothing as sweet and as pure as a baby’s playful delight and gorgeousness. For me, it’s cuteness overloaded. It always gives my heart joy to watch their simple delight.Child

❤ Cute little puppies spell pure carefreeness and mischief to me 🙂

Glowing Bright…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.

Moon_1[1] Moon[1]

Two glowing bulbs

light up the night sky

one is the full moon

and one is the bulb

a riddle I guess you can solve

Last night I tried to capture the full moon, but alas this is a poor replica of the golden orb that I saw. The moon is such a regular feature in our lives…what if the old man on the Moon decides to take it away for a while? What then?

Out of the silent breath

Delicious memories are here with me,

of lying in your arms and listening to your heartbeats

they rhymed with the drip drops on the rooftops.

of cuddling under the covers, as the windows misted over,

whispering sweet nonsense and laughing softly,

to our little intimate jokes.

Magic abounds…Ronovan writes weekly haiku challenge

I love the glitter ‘magic and glimmer’ that we are offered for this week’s Ronovan’s Haiku.

Twin, Sisters, Love, Girls, Blue Eyes, Beauty

The children’s laughter sounds magical
the glimmer of their glow sticks
twinkles in the bright rays of Sun

****

She watches them from the kitchen window
her eyes glimmer with tears
heart-filled with life’s wondrous magic that abounds

****

They were mere glimmers of yesterday’s hope
like dreams conjured from magic
gorgeous twins to love in a swoop.

In Pairs…Every day beautiful people 46

Sometimes, miracles come in pairs or even more.

“Double the giggles, double the grins. Double the trouble, when you’re blessed with twins,” Unknown

Twins[1] Twins_1[1] Twins_2[1]

Quite an interesting incident to go to the shops and run into several twins on the same day and in the same store.

I wondered if it was a “bring your twins shopping day,” but the cashier said that such a thing did not exist.

Out of the silent breath

Never leave me lonely on these shores

Where no one knows me

Where I stare at strange forms

Trying to find you somewhere there in their midst.

Eyes Speak…Every day beautiful people #27

‘Eyes are captivatingly beautiful. Not because of the colour, but because of the words they hold within them.’ Unknown

Smoky, sultry eyes add mysterious and vivid expressions to silent language. Jacqueline

Za’abeel Palace’s outer grounds…Echoes of my neighbourhood 15

 

On Thursday’s, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Every Thursday, share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time. It could be a house, backgrounds of your neighbourhood, activities and so forth and you can tag it Echos of my Neighbourhood, add my link to your post so that I will get the ping from your post.

Every other Thursday, I will publish a post with the links of all those who participated the previous week.

This is just a fun way of getting to see more of the World around us through your eyes since we cannot all be at those places, we could, at least, see them through you.

This week found me visiting the palace grounds again to go and see the peacocks.

Za’abeel Palace is one of the palaces for the ruling house of Dubai. It’s situated on very expansive ground space, with beautiful ostentatious surroundings. It has some of Dubai’s well-known landmarks like the Burj Khalifa at it’s back and the Emirates twin towers.

The palace grounds is home to so many beautiful peacocks that love to eat peanuts and if you are lucky, they can eat out of your hands.

The ambience is lovely both in the daylight and at night. One day, who knows, I might get a sneak peek into the inner courts of the Palace 😉

Last Week Echoes took us to different neighbourhoods, hop on let’s go see and we will be glad to see some of yours.

Jazzytower shows us beautiful, majestic cherry blossoms and lots of robust looking Geese. There’s so much to like about this cheery photos. Take a peek.

Subic bay skywatch  I am literally jealous of Lady Lee. Beautiful photos, frolic in the water, picnic… 😉

Kat will have you hypnotised in two minutes flat. I want one of this 🙂

Giggles and tales shows us beautiful elevated landscape views of Copenhagen. You can fly to Denmark through her link.

Please do share a peek of your neighbourhood with us. Regards

Jacqueline
