In the city’s heart, where dreams are high, A kaleidoscope of homes does lie. Crimson, azure, and shades so bright. They paint the canvas of urban night.
Golden windows wink in the sun’s embrace; Streets hum below, a rhythmic bass. Life weaves through lanes, an endless thread, Stories untold, desires widespread.
Here, the pulse of man’s creation beats, A symphony of steps, the city’s treats. Each wall, a page in history’s tome, Every shade, a story of someone’s home.
In this mosaic of human affair, Diversity breathes its vibrant air. Where art and life seamlessly blend, The city stands, timeless—a colourist’s end.
