A Garden in Paradise

by Monica Sanchez

There are times I get lost in my dreams,
Just wanting to escape the problems of life.
I chose to lose my way in a garden full of flowers
and search for unconditional love.
The sun shines through the lavender fields
glorifying the beauty of nature.

Calm, peaceful tranquility of nature
while I am in paradise, it is not a hallucination.
The fluffy clouds and fresh air from the summer rain
fill my mind and soul with love.
Forests full of animals; I admire God’s creations
that surrounded the creatures and land like plants and flowers

Growing everyday like blooming roses.
The chirping and howling of animals in nature
searching for something, could it be tranquility?
Pure happiness is the key for a dream to come true.
Challenging hurdles and reaching the stars is the goal of life.
These gifts are from God.
