    Hi Everyone,

    I visited St.Petersburg, FL during the New Year eve time. I loved that place, its beach, its downtown and its surreal ambience. I wrote a poem on St. Pete beach to show my adulation. I am posting it here. I hope you guys would like it.
    Regards

    The Ocean Bells!
    (By Nirode Ray)

    It is before dawn
    the sun is still in bed
    at the shore end
    the sky lightens up
    and the sun pops out again.
    The seagull looks docile
    water remains placid
    the girl stands there,
    her curly brown hair
    in a cool ocean breeze.

    It is skin dip hot
    the noon wears no cap
    after a glass of ale
    I take a fizzy nap.
    Water is warm now
    sand turns white to grey
    that seagull remains there
    waiting for his prey.

    Evening falls slow
    the sun starts packing down
    a lonely dolphin, off shore,
    flaps back to her town.
    the sky looks foamy
    light changes its hue
    a series of blurred visions,
    like Monet’s Impressions
    hover on soft blue.

    The night hops
    it's all deep dark
    only a lighthouse blinks
    at a distant far.
    I look up to heaven
    I want to see her face
    the ocean bells,
    a tiny magic spell
    shuts my eyes close
    I lay down on St.Pete bay
    my memory fades away
    and the ocean allures me again.
