My favourite place in Sri Lanka

My favourite place in Sri Lanka is situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka. You are right. The place is Galle. I have chosen this town as my favourite place in Sri Lanka because of the sea.

The Unawatuna beach is a spectacular one and people all over the world come to see and enjoy the delights of it.

Personally, I love to go there and bodyboard with my father and my brother. Also found at Unawatuna are little restaurants and hotels which make it even more fun.

The last time I went to Galle was on a holiday.
Hotels found near the sea are also amazing, such as Closenburg, the Lighthouse, the Dutch House, the Sun House and many more.

Galle has a history too, as it was founded by the Portuguese when they were shipwrecked 500 years ago. I highly recommend Galle for a holiday. Really!

The words on a painting

I know I can't draw,
But there is this image in my head;
A painting.
A painting of;
Vividly mixed colours,
A lingering design.
The enthusiasm of an artist.

I'm not an artist;
Even attempting to draw,
This perfect picture,
Will flaw it;
With odd colours,
With messy work and
Spilled paint.

But I can write;
So without a brush, I use a pen.
Without paint, I use words.
As I brush my way;
Across the paper;
Words spill, and flow and ebb…
But they don't mess.

These words print into shape,
Colour my picture,
And make it; perfect.
