Tell-A-Tale (Part 23): The Deep, Dreamy Dikes of Shenzhen (深圳)

Perhaps it was the hunger in me.
Or the sunset that just was.

I started dreaming again.

Distance seems to separate the time from the soul.

The only time they meet is in dreams.

And when it’s good, you don’t want to wake you.

Notes:

1) Picture 1 was taken in Jurong, Singapore.

2) The populous Shenzhen distanced herself from the more lavish Hong Kong but the synergy that binds these two cities is overwhelming. With attractions like the Window of the World (Picture 2 and 3), a wide spectrum of gourmet delights (Picture 4) and an efficient MTR system, it’s definitely a deep dike (深圳) one will be happy to fall into.

3) I did.

Deep be these dikes
Am I dreaming
Or am I drowning?
