Paradise Now


There is a paradise awaiting.

For me, a final place to be.

Merriment without measure,

every day a gem fit chalice

of palm trees, tropical breeze,

nature sounds surrounding

a shiny happy rendering.

I would lay out in a hammock

in a hut with a banana leaf roof

and a warm soft sandy floor

leading out to a canopied porch

on the edge of a sandy world’s

vista of ocean and sunsets.

When I reach this dream state

and witness the spacious divide,

will the mindset that got me here

recognize the joy that comes

from not reaching anymore?

Or will it still strive unsettled,

beyond the simple oasis of

living in the present moment?
