While on an evening stroll I see a world full of dreams and hope,

walking beside the waters of  a fascinating  lagoon,

I find several date trees embracing the atmosphere,

well kempt lawns spreading as a carpet,

couples of all types acquiring their places…

A newly one coo-chi coos, an old duo exchange silence within,

few friends giggle with a can of coke over some kind of hilarious joke,

tiny toddlers learning to cycle,with their dads behind as their protector,

Fitness freaks jogging ahead,some are even less than their average weight,

Teen aged  boys play havoc with their skates,jumping and sliding down the trails,

some colleagues  sit and discuss work together,

few sit alone staring at the world of wonder ,

pondering and missing their dear ones,

still struggling  for  their survival…

Besides the canal as I walk,the transparent waters absorb my form,

reflecting in them my personality and providing me a new identity…

the serene waters… waves within,ripples and moves with propensity,

the skyscrapers kissing the blue paint  a new dimension,

to the aspirations  of dreaming  high,

Amidst the tall buildings ,I find myself lost..

striving to create my own platform,

in the world of dreams…

The land  where dates are born….

    It was too picturesque! I feelt as if I could see them walking and talking and playing around me!
    And you have already made your platform here with words! 🙂

    …and you are lost in ethereal way, Soumya. You created the mood in shades of nature, and how contemplatively you observed the details, finally you came back to your own voice. It’s a connective theory. 🙂

    Loved how you described the beauty of Dubai and Sharjah. Indeed, these places are beautiful. Lovely ending “The land where dates are born”.
    My dad also taught me how to ride a two-wheeler bike when i was a kid and he would be holding me from behind in the same way…over here on the sidewalks of saudi arabia. 🙂
    Brought back fond memories… 🙂
