Drizzle and the Sun…

1457425120831[1]

I was upset with the rainfall

It stole in at night with no call

I wanted to catch shots in the rain

Alas! She played me a fast one

And only left tracks on my window pane

Oh well! Let me enjoy the rising Sun.

Wait a minute! I see the rain coming back.

I guess it heard my call.

The Seasons Of Life….

The Daily Post Photo Challenge Seasons

Share an image evocative of the weather or represent the current “season of your life” in metaphor.

Seasons of life

Are as sure as time

From days, to weeks

To months, to years

Ever rotating

From birth,

To growth,

To death.

An

Unstoppable

cycle.

This is the season of white-out/fog and sandy storms in this part of the World *Dubai*.

Sometimes you wake up and you can’t even see anything in front of you when you look out.

 

 

Forever Rhyming….

1450415021833[1]

Though we rhymed for a brief moment,
And too soon it’s time to part.
In these wonderful moments
I have met such lovely art.

Do fare well, as time passes by,
And the seasons roll on by,
For we’ll be forever rhyming,
Till we can’t rhyme no more!

Writing 101, Day 10 – FAREWELL

Make The Most Of It!…

Winter

Sometimes, our approach to everything is a case of mind over matter especially when it comes to weather issues that we have no control over.

To an extent it might be true that peoples moods are highly affected by the weather, maybe there might even be a scientific explanation for this.

However, I maintain that since we have absolutely no control over sultry summer heats or bitter winter chills, we can only exercise control over how we choose to react to either situation.

Each season has it’s beauty, even the harsh seasons like Winter which comes with a lot of challenges, dampness and grayness.

Nonetheless, if we choose to look at things with the attitude of acceptance and positivity, it will also elevate our mind and change our altitude, that we will begin to actively seek ways to make that period pass more pleasurably.

There is no point in wasting a good couple of months sitting in the doldrums of misery, for a situation that cannot be changed. It is a case of Lord give me the grace to accept and endure the things that I cannot change.

When we moved to Dubai in July, the heat was second to none.

It sweltered so badly that one would have surely suffered from heatstroke from being out in such fiery heat.

We simply adjusted and found ways of keeping out of the heat, living and hydrating.

Now the temperature has cooled sufficiently and the weather is absolutely divine.

I intend to wring out every moment of it to the best of my ability whilst it last because, who knows what Madam Winter has to offer next time around.

My little ditty might make you catch a cold but will put a smile on your face.

The Daily Post prompt Climate Control

The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?

Was it Too Little, Too Late?…

There are times when people pass on and you wonder…

Was it that we didn’t pray enough?

Was it that we waited too long to pray?

Was it this and was it that?

Then it dawns on you once again!

That The Scourge of Death,

Though a most unwanted visitor,

Is the only certainty in the cycle of life.

And will call at His own time!

Like seasons come and go,

So does the life cycle of man!

Rest in peace, my lady.

Your absence will be felt.
