A Poem in Paradise

The fragrance of fruit blossoms fills the air. A book of poetry is on my lap. I feel the sun, yet have escaped its glare and feel so cozy I might take a nap! But oh, one glorious verse has caught my eye! It’s shaken all the drowsiness from me. Its utter beauty causes me to sigh. Such depth in those four lines of poetry! New thoughts are brimming, and I feel desire to capture them. They rush into my mind like wind that sparks my soul with a wildfire. I leave the orangery, for I must find my quill and paper. Reading poems is nice, but writing them - I am in paradise! Inspired by the contest of Isaiah Zerbst

    Orangery is a word?? I'll have to remember that for orange is my favorite color :) For those that don't write poetry can't understand the joy that comes from it - do you ever look back on older poems and get that funny feeling where you don't even recall writing it? Almost like they are dreams, lived in the moment. Keep writing paradise, Andrea!

    I had already read this poem, but can't find any comments!! Technically I like the way you manage your sonnet; it never seems to cross my mind to write one! Excellent poem and some reading poetry is great; others enjoy writing it; others love both. Congrats on your win, Andrea. // paul

    Wonderful Andrea...I find myself reading poetry when I should be sleeping all the time.

    what's an orangey? well Angie, I could almost cry to think that I spent more than a year off of work. and now I'm back at my old job, driving dump trucks. The thought just crossed my mind that God gave me that year off so I could write poetry. And that's a nice thought but what's suppose to happen to it? publishing? now that I have the money maybe I can make it so. Thank you for your concern and reading my work. This piece of yours was a delight to read. Reminds me of summer feelings. john

    thanks so much, john, and for letting me know about that silly typo I made on "orangery" it's a new word for me and I left out the R. it means a special kind of greenhouse where they grew orange trees, etc. it is the name of the painting that was shown with this contest about a poem in Paradise!
