Some Glittering tales from London- Part 1
London Bridge at Night
I looked at the full moon and its reflection
It returned with a tender smile
Thames flowed in its own unfazed rhythm
And ripples spread a mile
The fiendish wind played with my hair
My cheeks were red and cold
The eye of London changed its hues
An amorous tenor, like wine old
My childish whim was all in awe
The traveller spirit was high
As manmade wonders hold hands of nature
Enchantment touches the sky
I stared at the glittering city life around
I gaped at the illuminated lane
Moon shone down casting a spell
The mirror of water satiated its queenly vain
The glitter of the city has a lot to offer
London Bridge, Museums and more
But it has a soul, it has a heart
Unify to that texture and open the door
That night in London...
After 5 hours of road travel, gliding through the countryside and riding through the stone lanes, we reached London. It was a beautiful night indeed. The moon shone brightly on the illuminated lanes of the famous city. Christmas aura was irradiate and audacious. Lights flooded the corners and happiness shone around.
It is true when they say ‘it’s all in the mind’. Even that long travel couldn’t fade our enthusiasm. A cup of hot chocolate and we were on the roads, invading London and collecting mid night tales.
Hitting the roads with all might
The city was in high spirits, there were musicians, dancers performing for the cheering crowd. People disregarded the late hours, hit the roads and unified with the glorious pandemonium.
We three ladies, Prachi, Dhanya and I, were also determined to mine some precious moments and keep them safe with us forever.
My craze for luminance was well settled that night, as every lane had a unique crisscross of mystic glow. Somewhere the Angel had descended in its seraphic overtone; again another dark lane was embraced in loyal blueness.

We had put up at ‘Radisson Blu Edwardian, Kenilworth’ hotel, which was located in the heart of central London. British Museum was just 2 minutes away. Also Oxford Street, which is known to be a shopping paradise, was only 15 minutes of delightful walk away.
Shop till you drop, Oxford Street
Hence, expectantly, we spent that night shopping, eating, giggling and making the most of the festive aura. Words can hardly do justice to the gaiety that rang inside, the music that drenched the soul and lights that brightened the heart.
Angels for company
Tired physically and with a heart full of hope, we hit the bed hoping to have a bright next day and imprint some beaming moments.
