kochi

we're sitting here,
under this coconut tree
our own cosy harbour


watching quiet ripples
form in
night silver waters,


that stretch across
and open out
into the ocean


where dim lights
betray the silhouette
of a sleepy ship far away


water flows gently,
time laps at our feet
in easy waves.

Hi...dropped in from Ashwin's...

Feels-good after reading...I've always loved Mallu land for its scenic beauty (but food is bad)

Nice read..
