    Paradise....

    waves of blue and green
    a sea of tranquility
    washing stress away

    celestial breeze
    gently blowing through palm trees
    lulling my senses

    warm sugar white sands
    making love to feet and toes
    natures own massage

    bird song ever soothes
    takes me to a peaceful place
    restfulness abounds

    ripe tropical fare
    juicy mango and guava
    a palate's delight

    soothing holiday
    such a splendid oasis
    ever more serene

    waterfalls glisten
    sands envelop us in warmth
    this bright sparkling day

    Wings parade the sky
    Fragrances of new...
    Celebrate the ocean blue


    All senses awake
    The lungs full and free
    Life transforms into a breeze


    ~Imagination~
    Pillows in the sky
    Never-ending horizon


    I, One with the sun
    A slumbery calm...
    Fusing with the sounds of dawn
