Ode To The Sunset (in Bali)

20191227_182636

oh, sun so beautiful
when you set
you silenced
everyone
in a place so crowded
they gaze and marvel at you
with intense in all its glory
while i stood quietly
in awe
in amazement
in wonder
you make my heartbeat
one with the waves splashing
and for the first time in a long while
you calm the storm raging in me
my heart that was once in fury
is now tempered.

oh, sun so beautiful when you set
you bring the magic back in me.

Photos are of beautiful (beautiful is not even enough to describe it) sunset in Bali.

Bali has long been a popular travel destination,  known for its beautiful beaches, great food and incredibly welcoming ( and i meant it with all my heart) people.

Another big Bali draw is the sunset and the plethora of stunning locations to watch them from. No visit to the island is complete without gazing from a beach, a cliff or jungle as the sun disappears into a colorful haze.

Apart from the magnificent sunset, i noticed that though the beach is crowded, yet not a noise was made as we all await for the sun to set. The world stops for a moment. It was so quiet;  so quiet we only hear the wind blowing and  the waves splashing.

P.S.

You can now add writing poetry to your “must do list in Bali”.  Find a spot amidst the crowd and write.

O, Summer Rain Don’t Go

O Summer Rain Don’t Go

Loveless tide swept
In the seashore
Where i once stand
Alone and unsure

There, we’re together
Walking by the shore
Looking gently at the sea
Gazing through your smile

Our eyes met then
Our hearts touched
As deeply we felt
That loving feeling within

But now its gone
Carried by the tide
Back to the sea
Where once we’re together

Bring back my love oh thee
In the seashore where we shared
The afternoon summer rain drizzle
Over our kisses and sweet embrace.

Oh summer rain don’t go
No, not yet i can’t let go..

P.S.

It seemed to me that summer rain isn’t over, as it still continues to inspire me with beautiful thoughts and endearing moments…that rain, once shared with the one you love is perfectly beautiful no matter what time of the year it may come.

Ahhhhh summer rain..look what have you done !!!
