What do you see # 70 – A Roundup

➰➰➰

A sense of uneasy and dread filled her heart

As she looked around and thought everyone looked better

Then her homely and simple appearance

They looked decked up in glitter and glamour

She felt plain and ordinary in comparison

Her unease evaporated when a kind soul

Complimented her on the grace of her simple ensemble

The spark of confidence that we all need is hidden inside of us all

It can be ignited by a simple word or a gesture of praise

➰➰➰

What do you see # 69 – A Roundup

➰➰➰➰➰

She put down the phone and stared into space for a few moments. It was her best friend. She was canceling their planned trip to Paris, as something had come up at work and she wanted Kathy to postpone the trip.

Kathy didn’t want to put off this trip which had been her dream for so long. Now all the planning and time would go to waste. And she wasn’t even sure that the total amount for the hotel bookings would be refunded.

She made a snap decision. She would go on her own.

She never regretted her step. It was here she met George and they fell in love under the golden lit Eiffel Tower.

➰➰➰➰➰➰

My heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful people who participated in this week’s prompt. An iconic image, Eiffel is romanticized as a symbol of love.

What do you see # 68 -A Roundup

🌸🌸🌸

Born into murky waters

Its environs not clean or attractive

Yet it’s beauty is unmatched, pure

It derives the best from its environment

And shows us that we too can overcome

The handicap of our birth or circumstances

And blossom forth into the world, full of grace and dignity

🌸🌸🌸

What do you see # 67 – A Roundup

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

The moonlight oval falls on the open gate

The gate is invitingly open, the light just perfect

Get up, venture forth and explore the moonlit vista

This opportunity is not offered frequently to us

Imagine what wonders are waiting to be discovered

If we just get up and step out in this inviting scenario

Are you up to it?

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

What do you see # 66 – A Roundup

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

What is real, what is fake

Why should I believe my eyes, what do I see

Change the way you look, erase and create a new persona

Everything can be done, just download an app

It’s all acceptable, all taken as okay
