The sea breeze trickles down my lungs–

The taste of the sand lingers in the air.

I walk barefoot,

Back and forth, the soft beach trickling between my toes.

I perch beside the seagull ashore with cold drops of sweetened ice dripping down my arm.

I hold the light wooden stick from one end trembling from the anticipation.

I draw out the sour sweetness from the chunk of ice

And the coolness slips down the warmth of my throat.

The acidity of kala khatta plays a resounding symphony with the sweetness.

Just as the ocean soothes the warm sand,

The harmony of this piquant combination of flavours settles on my dried tongue and pacifies my soul.
