Paradise now

Under a big ol' tree
calmly stretching out its canopy
reaching towards the sky
ethereally blessing the space
Grasses underneath and cool shade
from the burning sun
A breeze running through the gateway
between house and tree
hopping and skipping leaving trails
of cool relief

A guardian of secrets and quiet stillness
yet trembling with promises of a
golden tomorrow beginning now
The green little house with all the flowers
Purple and red and pink like vanilla
ice cream
color the day with joyfulness

Cats and dogs run around in circles
under the full moon hanging low
over the horizon
over the treetops that sing their song
Tunes in harmony of full abundance
in Paradise now
