Tryst with Dubai

Two weeks flash past ;

starts with a surprise upgrade

On the flight

Then the warm welcome

From daughter Annalize and

Ian her beloved .

Special meals in-house

As well as fine dining

With a taste

of local cuisines

And some from afar

Family gatherings were fun,

Music and song to bring out the joy;

Birthday celebration

Not once , but twice !

And then Ras Al Khyma,

A weekend resort

Seaside encounter

And dip in the ocean!

Two evenings of tennis

Count four stars

To experience the joys

Of service , returns

And deft placements .

Alas, the final day of

Sights to see;

The well known Dubai Mall

Giant Dinosaur, Giant Aquarium,

And an exquisite display of fountains to music !

Oh yes the tallest and scintillating

Bhuj, at sundown,

Glitters in solitary splendour

Thanks to Annalize and Ian

Tilll we meet again

Bye bye Dubai !
