The Sweet Man – Everyday beautiful people 86

“Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

“Except you open your eyes and explore the corners around you, you will walk past every beautiful thing on your path, failing to see the Orchids hidden among the Roses.” Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

In my wandering through some backstreets of Deira over the weekend, I stumbled upon the sweet shop and like a sugar ant I was drawn in 🙂

The shop owner was quite gracious as I took photos and had a brief chat with him. He’s from Bangladesh and has been living in Dubai for 22 years. He also has sweet tooth.

When I asked him how much of the sweets he eats in a day, he shook his head from side to side and said not so much again, because he can’t afford to lick all his profits. That gave me a good chuckle.


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.

The Sweet Nothings… :)

chocolates

There lives a fair maiden
She has a sweet tooth
Carts full of sweet laden
She puts in her booth

Her eyes fill with twinkles
Her cheeks show their dimples
At thoughts of sweet sprinkles
She laughs with merry tinkles

A lick and a nibble, she sighs, Oh my,
This bite feels so right
It gives so much delight
Oh how I enjoy this, though it sits on my thighs.
