Soft waves caress the black earth,
Crashing on the pebbly beach.
The sand swells up with water,
Pregnant in love.
Just then the water recedes,
To join the ocean vast.
Leaving behind parting kisses,
For its lover, as it trails back.
The soil blushes embracing the love,
Weeps quietly and lets him go.
Her tears sparkle like a starry night,
Ah! What a pity-pretty sight.
Some facts about Reynisfjara Beach :
Reynisfjara is a world-famous black-sand beach found on the South Coast of Iceland, just beside the small fishing village of Vík í Mýrdal.
With its enormous basalt stacks, roaring Atlantic waves and stunning panoramas, Reynisfjara is widely considered to be the most beautiful example of Iceland’s black sand beaches.
The roaring waves of Reynisfjara are particularly violent, often pushing far further up the beach than many would expect as such you are advised not to stand facing your back towards the beach. The sand is fine on this very pebbly beach.

Until then, happiness and sunshine as always
P.S: The receding of the water leaves stars on the ground to admire. A perfect “Taare Zameen Par ” moment for me. Do you agree?
