The Tender Coconuts decorated with Crimson Hibiscus and the Man who sells them from the shore

The tender coconuts decorated with hibiscus in crimson are so delightful a sight that charms the visitors who come across the shore of Mahe Islands in Seychelles.When they are under the shades in the midday sun, among the thick leaves of the surrounding, they add beauty to the shore and comfort to the people around in a cool manner !

Walks Along The Long Roads…And The Pauses On The Pavements And Parks

In Singapore, it is a nice practice to walk along the pavements, a calm and casual way to enjoy the place and people. So when it comes up to a traveler fresh in the land it would be a refreshing experience to the mind and body.The neatly designed pavements in the city circles surrounded by rich greenery are quite cool and pleasant!

garden-parks provide a sound set up to relax and refresh in Singapore

The parks beside these pavements act as a shelter for the easy pedestrians during the hot noontime. They sat on the benches situated amidst the bunches of small trees grown well-planned and beautifully everywhere around those premises..

In spite of the heavy construction works undergoing, the footpaths remain unhindered by them and the people passed over peacefully across; the sight of the pairs sharing their privacy on those ways prove a sample to the ideal management of these heavy works !!

In the snack-spots near the Singaporecaferoads, couples find their resort during the short pauses on their movements across the city..

The well-laid out plaques in Singapore city Squares

The well-built roads were earmarked with well-laid out plaques according to the significance of each and every corner of the city circles..

The city walks were not yet over, the pavements stretched wide and the nights were not at reach…so miles to go before the sleep…!!

 

The Sounds Of The Beloved In The Dawn And ‘The Lake Around The Hills’

Lake2Before the Ages , during a winter,a loving pair had eloped from the city of castles and searched for a place of rescue so as to fulfill their pursuit of love enduring…till the end of the world!….they finally reached a plateau which had been deserted by a war of some sectarians, a few decades back…

There they erected a home of logs and bamboos that had been left by the last inhabitants of the plateau.

By the time the winter grew denser and they thought of spending the time by embracing each other for long…and  got into a prolonged embrace for hours to survive the cold of the season….;the fire of togetherness began to ignite profoundly within them and the icebergs around them started melting soon..!!The dense icebergs so melted down started flowing out of the spot…like a turbulent stream of rivers emerging out of a mountain of high altitude….;Obviously it was a river that had sprang up from the heat of their amounting passions…

Now that the river had turned the plateau into a green land of shades and there formed a blue lake around them!!!

The loving pair who were lost in the cold blue lake began their  talk  in the subdued tone of love by the time of forgetfulness like this,

The love told: “I’m all that of a hill surrounded by a lake”

The lover replied: “Yes,I’m all that of the rocks that maintains this blue lake around you, conjuring up the undercurrents of your powerful dreams that blooms out into real out of this plateau of rescue…”

Then the love told him: “All that flows out of me are the kisses you spread over my cliffs and the strokes you fill upon my valleys …every day and night…!! ”

And the story went on till the end of the winter.
