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.

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?

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.

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.

As Magic Abounds…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


The air is so crispy
The birds are quite chirpy
The magic of nature abounds
As I imbibe all the sounds


My quick strides grow shorter
My eyesight gets sharper
My senses soak in deeper
Pictures become magically wider


The lady and her dog walk past
Bow-Wow says hello
The labourer offers a fleeting smile
And he works pretty fast


So much floral blooms
And golden, droopy trees loom
Scented float of planted perfume
There is simply no room for gloom


More barking dogs
The tinkle of calm waters
The men play a hand of golf
And a bird catches a grub


A deep sense of satisfaction
Of peace I sense within
As the Sun peeks to say hello
I am happy to embrace me


My passion has called
Now, no longer ignored
I hear the reverberations
Of the magic hidden within.
