Lines of Time…

old, beautiful, aging, life cycle

With each engraved wrinkle

that time etched on

she lost her youthful looks

but never her twinkle.

‚Č°

Her beauty’s matured

as her heart’s nurtured

the canvas of lines of time

stories of a precious lifetime.

 

Our beauty stays with us irrespective of how old and wrinkled we become. We only become a much more beautiful and limited edition ūüėČ

Transient

The early morning Sun breaches the sky, cutting the blanket of last night as it heralds a new day.

Taking a walk at 6 a.m this morning and at 39 degrees I know that before 7.30 am The Sun will be blazing with such blinding intensity that will hit the upper 40’s before it’s mid-day.

As we simmer and stew in the heat, I am comforted with the thought that this season of infernal heat is just for a season of several months and that as each night comes, we’ll breathe in respite in the cooler darkness.

Now, she has been shorn of all her leaf, her bare branches stand bare like a dry ghoulish skeleton stripped of its fat.

A few months ago, she stood rich and burgeoning with greenery but cycling through life, this is the lean time, soon she will experience the new birth of more leafs.

We are they going? I have no idea, but they are certainly on their way.

Everything in life is in a transient state

Potato spuds…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.

Potatoes[1]

I bought sweet potatoes for my three days menu plan, by the time I got to use it, it had started sprouting.

That gave me a little pause to dwell on the life cycle of a plant, or the potato as the case may be.

Life does not need us to happen all by itself.

The potato showed signs of not minding being replanted to yield more harvest.

Are you replanting something?

I found this flower as I walked the pavement.

Though it had weeds trying to share its space, it still stood out.

Even the dried one’s had something ¬†beautiful about them.

They’ve lived. It’s time to go and make space for another bloom.

Possibly, their pollen will help do the job of propagating more beauty elsewhere.
