At Peace!

The warm breeze carries moist salinity of the endless sea,

the hues of the receding sun begins its final dance across the horizon,

choreographing each movement with graceful swirls.

As dusk ambles across the skyline with a sublime gait

leaving a trail of scarlet dreams,

I sit by the shore watching this celestial spectacle unfold.

Just as the broody clouds pale against its luminous crimson glow

my stress from the chaotic day releases,

bringing an untold sense of calm to my weary mind.

Architectural Marvel!

 

I can’t help but marvel at the creative talents the architects and sculptors around the world had since ancient times. The intricate carvings, alluring beauty, the exquisite craftsmanship, the fine detailing of these structures is truly mesmerizing. Each building, temple, church, synagogue or monument of the days of yore has a story to tell. The technical know how, wisdom and vision of the workers is awe inspiring. All this was done centuries before the advent of “google” and technology.

Today, we have tall skyscrapers, but they are no match to the aesthetic beauty of those ancient structures. Each part of the world has many appealing monuments to be proud of.  Taj Mahal, The Pyramids of Egypt, The great wall of China, The Colosseum, Angkor Wat and many more all across the globe. I bow down to all those great unknown workers and sculptors who gifted the world such fine works of art, unparalleled till date.

I am sharing with you a few pictures of the opulent Grand Palace in Bangkok, which is a perfect example of the majestic and stunning architecture!
