Standing at the seasonal gate, careful as a sentry guarding the entrance, is the month of September, the one that spells the end of summer.
Some fear the end of the summer while others look forward to the fall, all depending how hot your summer is or how chilly the coming winter season can be.
But whatever the temperature of the preceding season or the one coming after the fall, people mostly appreciate the change, because we humans like things to change, to break the monotony of the sameness.
Fall in fact embodies the best time of the year for me, personally, as the temperatures are ideal, the scenery is spectacular, and special fall beverages like pumpkin spice lattes are also available.
Our winter is mostly mild and short in duration so the end of summer means that the next 4-5 months are going to be good weather and free of the intense heat that starts from month of April.
Here’s to having a great fall season and enjoying all its treats!
The verdant vegetation turns more lush green due to the monsoon rains. Water droplets magnify the grass blades till they shine like gems.
A green parrot takes refuge in the branches of a tree, not visible unless you know where to look. A slight moment and now you can discern it from the greenery in which it is hiding. Nature has built a wonderful camouflage for its survival.
An enchanting green emerald, winking and glittering in the powerful lights of a jewelry store, enticing you to splurge and take it home.I resist this urge because I’d rather not be encumbered with jewels, and live a free life.
I’msharing this post from 2020 as it fits the prompt for this week- Clouds
Use above image as inspiration for a poem or short story.
A wonder in the sky
Floating in the clouds these magnificent ships sails undetected and unobserved by mere mortals. Driven by the winds, their sails bellow and sparkle in the skies.
It is said that when the righteous are in trouble, help from heaven comes from above. They aided and abetted the Allies during the Great War. Diverting the planes and bombs of the enemy and saving a lot of lives. Beautiful winged creatures are in control of these ships.
Humans cannot see them but all other creatures, big and small observe them and are in awe of them.
Maybe if you’re lucky, you will see a ship like this one day, up above, floating in the sky.
So I had the pleasure of reading another fantastic book by Chris Hall.
What comes to mind when we read about following a rabbit! But believe me this book has a far more realistic and adventurous theme to it. I enjoyed it tremendously. It is written for adventurers, young and old.
The story revolves around two sisters who find a gateway to past, which takes them to a turbulent time in history.
Their adventures involve them in situations which are riskyanddangerous at times. The story grips you and you are engrossed in the world of two centuries ago. The perils and suspense-full twists and turns of the story lead to a satisfying ending.
I would recommend this book highly. Please check it out. It is available on Kindle and Kindle unlimited.
This weekend, GC and Sue W have given us the challenge Review.
How you felt when you read/ watched or used the product you’re reviewing, influences what you have to say about it. Or the money you spent on this product plays a major role in how you feel about it. There are many ways to critique something or someone’s performance;
“This is great. But I think you have gone too far with the emphasis on the wrong aspect of this issue”This is honey coated criticism can be sometimes hard to swallow.
Being kind even when being honest is a great quality when reviewing something or someone. One doesn’t need to shred someone’s confidence because you didn’t like what they made or wrote. It is not necessary to express yourself in hurtful words when reviewing a product.
What influences you when you review a book, a product or a movie/play etc? Or critique someone’s performance?
