Theme: Scene

Of Resorts, Regattas and an Eye-Shaped Lake

Tranquil, sunny and playful
The weather is in a flirtatious mood
Throwing perfect patterns and hues
With captivating brightness

The lush blue-green water's surface mirrors
The hills, clouds, trees, expansive resorts
Promenading tourists, irritable locals
Disturbed by the seasonal maddening rush

Honeymooning couples in boats
Vivacious and beaming
Conjuring intimate expectations
Of romantic liaisons

Young visitors
Ransacking the historical monuments
Carve 'I Love You'
Slicing their way into history

Elderly keep fastidious accounts
Of expenses incurred
Comparing costs
When they were young

Young boarders in neat rows
Spill on the Mall road
Eyeing the fashionable crowd
Feel trapped in their stiff uniforms

The local businessmen
Flushed with success 
Forget they cursed their deity
For being mean the previous season

The frail, tiny hill-station
Trampled with thousand footfalls
Craves for the idyll to end
To have a fleeting vacation.
