There is a special place
That my memory serves,
Far beyond worldly eyes
Barefoot in Paradise

Where is a perfect light 
From no sun, and me free
Padding, weightless, ‘neath blue sky
Barefoot in Paradise

Where is tranquil music
From no man-crafted source
Where I need only listen
Barefoot in Paradise

Though indescribable,
A rainbow of colors
Will surround and kindly blend
Barefoot in Paradise

May I now sit me down,
Mantra inwardly humming,
To seek the light and sound.
Barefoot in Paradise

    Contemplation/meditation,as though an astral voyage, Daver. Enjoyed this piece...the teeming life and vitality of the weightless mind meandering. Very refreshing.:) Love, Mikki

    You have described a nice dreamlike place that would make a great escape from the squalor of reality.
