Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 328 DUST & Weed

Our summers are dry and hot. Weeds and grass take a long time to make an appearance in the garden 😊. But there is always a layer of dust inside the house as I keep the windows open the whole day. But this is not so during the monsoon season. There is no dust but we see grass and the weeds enjoying their time above the ground. During the rainy days we do not get the garden cleaned. But we do so by the end of the rainy season and it is good to see a clean garden. But due to occasional rains grass and a lot of weeds grow. Along with that we start seeing dust again 😊. And this year we are still getting rains !

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
