Visions Of Paradise

Visions Of Paradise

A Poem by imagination101

Closing ones eyes and visualize a place of peacefulness.



Exotic drinks, colorful,umbrellas, passion fruit fill glasses.

Tropical oil rubbed on bodies basking in the sultry sun.

Assorted flowers pattern necks.

Women moving their hips to the ukulele in a hula dance.

Aloha is said.

MMM Hawaii is paradise.


Star lit night, creasent moon aglow.

Crickets churping in the night air.

Wild creatures making noise in the wilderness.

Sitting around an open fire roasting marshmellows and weenies.

Snuggling deep into a sleeping bag with the sky as your tent.

MMM camping is paradise.


Palominos, Stallions, Arabians, grazing on grass.

Sun coming up over the horizon.

Enjoy the summer day riding a horse,

galloping near a creek bank.

Feel the sun on your face, wind on your back.

MMM ranching is paradise.


Fingers massaging muscles.

Hot rocks on the spine of your back.

Cucumbers on puffy eyes.

Warm mud mask on face.

MMM day spa is paradise.


Out on the open sea.

Floating to far away places.

Sight seeing.


MMM a cruise is paradise.


Husband out with friends.

Kids at sleep-overs.

Home alone.


MMM that is paradise.


What is paradise to you?

Eyes closed.

Mind wandering.

Paradise is..........

You took me far away to places that I felt like I was there .... wonderful vision.

That was cleverly done. You capture the clours, scenes, and sounds of what summer is supposed to be. It was really nice to read. Roll on the summer!

Great imagery. We all need to be relieved from time to time.

I like a good massage. We all need to feel pamper and content for a time. I could use a good vacation. Lately my writing had been my peace. I like this poem. Everyone need time for themselves and to try to find peace and calm. A excellent poem.
