Sunrise At Gopalpur-on-Sea

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

The holiday was special and meant a lot,
We would get to unwind in the scenic spot.
The resort room was comfortable and cozy,
The experience was delightful and rosy.

The stars winked and the moon shone extra bright,
Gopalpur-on-Sea waters sparkled in the moonlight.
Soothing lullaby of the waves hypnotized deep!
The luxurious night invited us to rest and sleep.

Though I had decided to wake up before sunrise,
Letting go of wishes, I shut my eyes feeling nice!
My body cajoled- "Please let me sleep late!"
"If not one sunrise, another will soon be in fate!"

I was up early- at dawn much to my surprise!
Body and mind- super-charged for the sunrise!
I rushed to the beach and waited for the magic,
Many were glued for the sun's appearance-trick!

Ah! Vibrant colours in the sky and the first sun-rays!
Feel blessed to receive gifts thanks to nature's grace.
As the sun made its presence felt bit by bit in style,
Golden sands glittered; my face lit up with a smile!
This sunrise is different, like every other sunrise is.
Everyday such cool opportunities are ours to kiss!
Enjoy the moments; gather such unique memories,
Life is beautiful with moments to cherish like these!

Do you remember any special sunrise of your life? Do you enjoy such moments? Do share your memories in the comments below.
