I've been off this website for far too long. I believe it is time time revamp this place up and submit some more photos.
Good day to y'all!
DubaiDubaiDubai by Riva
Sun and sea play hide and seek,
Sending blazing reflections
Into a wanderer's eye,
Blinding him with scorching fury,
As he struggles to look on,
Towards sailing dhows and abras.
An army of boats,
Glide gracefully along the waves,
Like skaters on ice.
With creased faces and wrinkled skin,
Worn away from decades of toil,
Banter noisily and gesticulate.
As you saunter along the Creek,
Following its long and winding path,
Fresh, warm smells of Arabic food,
Manakeesh, fatayer, shawarma,
Waft to your nose.
You are suddenly ravenous,
And Fatafet Café,
With its hospitable waiters
And bursts of invigorating colour,
Welcomes you with open arms.
Billows of sheesha smoke
Stream through the doors and windows,
As you enter.
Nearby an eager child,
Plays with a vivid kite.
You take a seat with a view,
And watch the water swell
With a mind of its own,
Overwhelming the banks with soft sprinkles,
Which amuse the flocks of seagulls,
And cool the feet of passers-by.
In this space,
