Carpe Diem # 1025 “beauty”

The inspiration for this episode comes from this quote by Rumi
[…] “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” […] Rumi

camera in hand
she walks along foreign streets
capturing beauty

I’ve been busy with family and traveling for the past few weeks.
Time to get back to Haiku.

Mish  and I hope you find some time to slow down and marvel at the everyday bumps in your life.

Ordinary Marvels

I longed for beauty –
collecting it in the things
and people surrounding me
filling the shelves of
my life with shiny knick-knacks
discarding anyone, anything
that didn’t sparkle
and when the glimmer, shimmer, glow
began to fade – showing itself
a temporary pleasure
I began to wonder at the
ordinary – to marvel at the
bumps and thorns that
make life real
