Such a beautiful description of a paradise remaining today on earth. Paradise, worldwide, was the Creator's original plan, temporarily interrupted, soon to be fulfilled. Beautifully described, thank you. Jeannie

This is quite lovely Hemakumar. I assume it's a description of your beloved Sri Lanka. What other place on this earth has quite the depth of exotic, lush color and brilliant skies. A thoroughly appealing poem, straight from the heart. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Very pleasureable trip filled with food for all the senses. Nice the way you start at the seashore and then gradually work up into the heights and distances eventually out into the forever.
