PARADISE IS CALLING MY NAME

 

How would paradise

appear to you?

A house standing in calm water.

The scent of flowers in the air.

People strolling the clean streets.

No need to hurry.

Warm breezes.

Sun shining.

Birds chirping.

Perfect.

THE LIGHT

 

 

Take me to the bright light that shimmers

in the far reaches of the forest.

I lay my head on a thick bed of grass.

A blanket of flowers for my cover.

Sleeps takes me away from here

to a place where there’s no fear.

I fly above the branches

and gaze at my sleeping form.

Contentment relaxes my face.

My eyelids flicker in my dream.

Too soon it will be night,

bringing the dark and cold.

I must return tomorrow

to see how my dream unfolds.
