Island Of Paradise

Paradise in the middle
of a deep blue ocean
Bordered by beautiful
golden sandy beaches
Rows of coconut trees
sway on the coastline
Swing gently to the rhythm
of refreshing breezes

Cascades of water pouring
from central hills
Splashing in between rocks
into flowing streams
Slowly fluxing through
evergreen valleys
Silently meandering towards
a pearly ocean

Beautiful breathtaking
distant sceneries
Visions through thin
misty curtains
Perfectly manicured
vast tea plantations
Eye catching green carpets
on hillsides

Gardens dressed in
elegant flowers
Blossoms bloom in diverse
attractive colours
Jasmine, Chrysanthemum
Gardenia and Roses
Spread irresistible fragrances
and exquisite flavours

Adventurous evergreen
tropical rain forests
Free animal lives linger in
wildlife sanctuaries
Cultivated paddy fields
are a symbol of prosperity
Wonderful Island of paradise
is a place of serenity
