The Marina

The night sky hugs the unknowing dusk,
strong and gripping ..
Waters of Marina cooling the shore,
It is here that life beckons the souls,
Twilights twinkle and tidel waters adore.

Churning lighthouse reminds a giant eye,
watching and blessing ..
Tiny feet let loose on the seamless sand,
The wind freshens the mind for the week next,
Wiping the past, rewriting with a capable hand.

Vendors sell peanuts to the hearts adrift,
light and strong ..
The Albatross flight guiding the ship and its crew,
Raging city far behind with sounds so faint,
Kites colouring the sky - green, orange and blue.

The ideal spot for the weekend,
for families and love ..
The Marina stands at the shore of the bay,
Spreading unity that brings feel to its water,
The sheer source of energy all along the way.

@tsu: tats strange. bessi is a must-visit, mebbe it was d first 18 yrs of ur life wen u were stuck 2 school wth a heavy backsack. i started goin 2 bessi only since coll, so ur case is quite believable. come over soon, i wil show u arnd :). the tsunami snap is juz d reality, marina isnt responsible 4r it neway. if nythn, tz juz a victim :(. while at tat, i cant 4gt d tsunami coz tats wen i had my first fracture, my left wrist broke at 2 places wen i tried 2 c watz hapenin 2 d sea frm my terrace and fell down.
