It was love at first sight;
And I realised this expression was true;
That fountain of joy; when it danced
Like the sky had suddenly enhanced
And everything around was new.
I was innocently being questioned
How could there have been anything to rue?
The magic it created
As the sounds and lights romanced;
The water splashed audaciously;
I felt my heart
Beating to the rhythm cautiously;
Before my soul abandoned itself
The dazzling fountain
Cascading in its bold beauty;
Tore off the last trace of inhibition
My spirit rose higher, and higher
Reveling in the joy of this creation.
5 years ago, I stood in front of the fountains at the Dubai mall with my mouth open and eyes filled with wonder. This post has been long, long overdue. Someday, I will go there again.
