Sprawled – 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.

Cat, Lazy, Photography, Sprawled, Heat,

The heat here simply fries one’s brain cells and slows you down.

I sure feel like this kitty. Just that I can’t sprawl at will on the sidewalk 😉

Swelter… Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

For a change, the UAE weather in the past week’s has been cool and almost chilly enough to wear my boots and sweaters. I am loving it and wish the heat will not appear too soon. On that note, for Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge prompt ‘Sweat & Heat’ I offer below:

1-35

Let’s enjoy the present UAE cool weather

 before its’ notorious heat reappears,

and we get all hot and bothered.

Under the sweltering heat of Middle-East sun,

the labourers sweat profusely,

gulping gallons of lifesaving water each day.

Dazzling and Scorching – Ronovan writes weekly haiku challenge

Sun[1]

You are certainly moving with the times Ronovan by giving us a prompt ‘Dazzle & Sky’ that aptly matches the blazing Sun that comes out so early these days and the heat is not mild by any means. The photo I used for the prompt was taken this morning around 5.00 a.m. when I woke up.

Recently, as early as 4:30 a.m.

the Sun rises, rays dazzle and glow

in the Middle-Eastern sky.

 😎😎

It’s brilliance warms you up

if you can catch an early walk

under the dazzling clear sky

♨♨

When you miss the hour

that the Sun gently embraces the sky

you’ll face dazzling, scorching heat.

Flames of the forest and more Echoes of my neighbourhood 22

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.

It’s all good that the trees and plants are blooming at this time of the year. The flame of the forest’s orange blooms are vibrant and offers people a colourful cool spot to take cover from the Sun that’s literally baking hot.

During the weekend’s, I always find a couple of hours when I disengage from family affairs and take that time to meander a bit about town and just be by myself.

All the photos in this series were taken last week Saturday. I traipsed or rather, took the bus, train and taxi to different parts of town and most weekends, tourists flood the city in droves.

We e-zoomed around various neighbourhoods on our laptops, pads, phones, and got a peek into what lovely folks are doing.

Like Mercury Colliding: Receiving natures serendipitous gift on your birthday can be such a delightful blessing. Kat makes me want to grow some Magnolia’s.

Jazzy Tower: Beautiful moments in life captured with a great sense of satisfaction.

Giggles and Tales: Just gorgeous photos of serenity and Stella.

Don’t horde the beauty of the life around you, just for yourself. Do share with us😉

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

The weather has heated up quite a bit, but these men are able to find some repose on their push carts. The heat actually tends to make one feel a bit lethargic.
