Firstly, wishing all the fellow bloggers and readers ‘Happy New Year’!! It’s been almost a month since my last post, I have been traveling and catching up with loved ones 🙂 So, blogging got out of attention purview. Well, I’m back and here’s the first post for the year….
I saw flurry of colors taking off and
Landing smoothly on the calm waves
I witnessed the smiles while memories were made
The drawings on the golden sand
Making impression on my heart
