Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

Nowadays, happiness is evanescent to me… it comes and goes and never stays for too long. When I see little things that fuel my mind and bring happiness to my heart, I usually try to capture them with my phone, as a reminder for hope.

Just Like this little flower that we planted on Independence Day while visiting the farm. Every now and then it grows a little and then withers, fragile just like myself.


I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all Joni Mitchell

Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

This week’s photo challenge has got me thinking…

While I was struggling to find a proper photo for this week’s theme “Heritage“, it crossed my mind that it’s Jerusalem Day today and I found this photo that was shot at my aunt’s house in… well, Jerusalem 🙂


That’s my humble contribution for this week. Happy Jerusalem Day.

Mark of Cain

I need to find the answers within me

Cracks in my memory

won’t allow me to remember who I am

won’t let me forget the words that were said

I lost my instincts along with my pride

I miss my cats, I miss the past

Layers of dirt hide the forgotten beauty

The sacred structure that was supposed to be unbreakable

Lost battles, defeated body and soul

The writing on the wall won’t fade away

A mark of Cain

A shadow to my dimming light
