Beach from my eyes!

Blogging after a really long time!!Instead of ranting something philosophically I thought I should post something that I have never tried before.I wanted 4 paragraphs of 4 lines,then a tapering end ;) I don't really know if this qualifies as a poem but this would definitely reflect my heart's feelings :)

With sea gulls gliding and taking off
on the emerald ocean,
I stand at a distance all cold and covered up.
My eyes thanked me for the beautiful sight.

Two years ago the same eyes watered
after two chilli bajjis.
I was trying to cover my face to escape tan,
in front of another ocean where kites took off.

Pacific may look better than Bay of Bengal
but can someone give me the latter's warmth?
My home was just forty minutes away by train,
my house here is away 3 hours by car.

Friends used to play pranks by pushing me into the water there,
friends bet dollars to touch the water here.
Hustles and bustles with hurricane lamps after dark for hours there;
while here, even sun silently sets at a predicted time.

The best photographs are always clicked in beaches I feel;
Here,the sunsets, the candid peaceful faces and wildlife,
whereas there, moth hovering lights; kind,poor and hungry smiles.

Ask me what i want,-I would ask for
the Pacific scenery with the Marina life in it!
