Diamonds and dreams

Diamonds and dreams

Diamonds and dreams in the eyes thirsty,
miles away lies what I look for.
My soul is handful of dust,
but still I wish to cross the Getaway.

Majesty in the sunshine of my day,
distant monsoons I see in every poem.
My heart lives in ruptured illusions,
but still I wish to walk on Marine Drive.

Will I ever reach the borders
of the Arabian sea?
Will I ever visit “the city
where changes happen overnight”?


The Getaway – attraction in Mumbai, India

Marine Drive– area in Mumbai/also known as the Queen’s necklace/

“the city where changes happen overnight” – a line from the poem “Mumbai” by Fahim Sayed on

    When you finally are able to go, will you take me with you? I love the poem – it makes me long for those places too, known only from photos.

    Woooowwiiiezzz… it’s so nice to read a poem on Bombay, Blaga… and even nice to see that YOU have composed it… how lovely!! Made me all nostalgic and all… (even brought tears to my eyes)
    I love the title you gave the poem… it is soooo apt! I am guess the “diamonds” is in reference to Marine Drive? Hurrraaayyyyy!! It’s simple beautiful! And yes, dreamy too….

    Thank you for using one of my photos here, girl…. makes me feel honored and proud!!

      I’m sure your town deserves much better, but this one is from the heart! It was the description about Marine Drive you gave me to make the title! I’m glad you liked it and thanks for the photo!

    Beautiful Blaga! I wish to walk on Marine Drive too! With my beloved by my side! This is the one of the most romantic thoughts! Marine Drive! Where love is in the air! I can imagine the smell of the sea and the beautiful silhouette of my beloved next to me!
