To find consonance in contraries
to let life take its own course
just like the waves that crash
on your shore,
You welcomed with open arms
even the conquerors
and made them your own
and in the process
effortlessly became their heritage.
The tall palms and the salty sand
witness to wild parties and sober prayers,
and calm rendevouz .
A curio shop nestled between
a small church and a rest-o-bar
Agnel,Satish and Aamir
Goa ,you are an icon
love and life.
