Thinking positively #MondayMusings

There is a crispness in the air

A nip so slight it’s almost not there .

Ms Papaya sleeps

Parrots screech

Girls from the school across the road march Left, Left, Left , Right, Left

The bread man knocks and hands me a loaf Fresh from the bakery, all soft and warm

School buses begin to rumble and

A motorbike whizzes past .

In my kitchen, the kettle boils , my coffee perks.

And steps of children running upstairs , mingle with newspapers rustling

Left left left right left .

The sounds slowly recede into the background as more noises roar down the road instead .

A new morning breaking , a new week starting

How wonderful it is to be up today.

Looking out the balcony, I watch the sky turn blue each day.

The greyness vanishing , the clouds whitening and

gradually vanishing

into nothingness

As sunshine fills my days again.

After a long while I was woken up this morning by Ms Papaya who herself was awake since 5 am! I woke up reluctantly as I was tired after an exhausting and busy


After my traumatic experience with a blogging challenge I shouldn’t have attempted, I de-stressed with a night out to dinner with young friends who think about things so differently and positively.

So staring out while Ms Papaya slept for a second round, I felt the freshness come in from the outside and fully house with happiness.

Does this happen to you on a Monday morning ?

I’d love to hear your thoughts about waking up on Monday.

Sharing positive thoughts this Monday morning from a Mumbai that is waking up.

Happy Monday all!

  1. What an uplifting way to start a Monday morning. Your post almost inspired me to do a Tuesday morning jig. I love Mondays too and enjoy getting back on track with my writing, as I usually take a writing break on weekends.

    Love the shots, and the lyrical poetry. Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday too, Sunita. Happy week! <3

  2. That was an endearing start to the post and a positive ending. I have often wondered from your photos how tall is the building where you live because you seem to be living in a building situated over a high hill overlooking the whole city.
    Frankly speaking, I love waking up on Monday mornings. I look forward to pack the dabbas and send husband and son out of home and have lots of me time. For most Mondays of the year, I love this day because I get a chance to take a dive in my mind, fish out thoughts, put them into words and display on the blog plate. I love Mondays for the Mondays 🙂

  3. Blessed mornings to you my friend; loved the pics and the way you have linked the lightening sky ones to suit the lines of the poem!

    My monday mornings are usually grumpy as I didnt want the weekend to go away 😉
