A beautiful island it was
Garbed in a deep blue flowy dress
It appeared to be!
Only four-five small cottages
On some huge rocks stood
Trees and bushes of varied shades of green
Dotted with maroon leaved shrubs
The amazing houses, trees, shrubs-
All danced in the sea in tune-
With the rhythmical harmonious waves
Anchored were two house boats
The only mode of transportation!
A holiday mini resort it had become
A breathtaking sight it was-
Watching the moon
Gently glide through the cottony sky
Covered with twinkling stars far and wide
The melodic waves rumbled in a rage-
Terrifying the occupants in the darkness of the night
Nature ruled Man here-
The musical waves an urge to dance instilled
But the tempestuous ones sent all into hiding!
With the first ray of Sunshine –
Enchanted by Natures sparkling exquisiteness
Fear into ecstasy transformed-
Singing and merriment began
Transporting the dwellers to a beauteous Paradise
On the wings of blissfulness!
Awesome beauty inundates Nature-
The man on the rock mused
What a spectacular incredible panoramic sight it is!
Preserve and conserve it, we must-
Any imbalance we create-
A horrendous curse for us it’ll be
Beyond our comprehension Nature is and-
Indubitably within no time it can crush us
In contrast to its unsurpassable strength –
Nothing but a mere weakling, we Humans are!
