Paradise!

IMG-20190508-WA0035

The shimmering velvety sea

relaxes under the gentle rays of the sun

wisps of clouds stray in the canopy of blue

the endless horizon lost in a reverie

listening to the tales of the zephyr

the fresh ocean scent lingers on

slumbering waves, in its sapphire robe

 embrace the shore, kissing it

A panoramic vista of serenity

envelopes a sense of calm

opening the gateway to paradise!

Photo Challenge – Vista!

In response to Tuesday photo challenge #161, by Dutch goes the photo.

Prompt : Vista

Recently we visited Cinque Terre, the once isolated string of 5 fishing villages (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso) on the rugged Italian coastline, which today is a popular tourist place. Still maintaining its quaint old world charm, it boasts of some spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea, from atop the cliff. The best way to explore these villages once you get off the train, is by foot. It is dotted with tiny cafes, hiking trails, small vineyards. The houses perched on the steep landscapes, with their vibrant colors make it a visual delight.
