Part of that awe-inspiring Beauty
The golden orb of the dying sun, in its final bow
before night takes centre stage, sheds its magnificent
last rays of light onto the waters of the river Godavari,
giving birth to a thousand golden ripples;
The elegant river bridge, waltzing into infinity,
is living testimony to this awesome sight!
I stand with arms folded in my little craft,
rocked gently, rhythmically, by the welcoming
zephyrs of the silent evening;
I am magically, hopelessly absorbed into this
picture of poetic grandeur;
I become part of this breathtaking landscape
of sea and sky!
