Picturesque

Protected am I inside a  canopy of luscious green leaves
Hand resting on a vine hanging beside me 
The bench of a log I sit on holds me above the bright blue waters
Where I dip my feet and enjoy the swishing wet between my toes
In the distance an island awaits for me to swim across
There I gather plentiful things that greatly satisfy  
Here it is never cold nor is it steaming hot 
A gracious wind always blowing gently caressing the skin
Still longingly I gaze for a newcomer to pass through 
For in this perfect paradise being alone will sadden the heart
All these beautiful things to share with no one there hard to endure
I will be patient for when they arrive they are sure to stay
We will dance on the waters singing sweet melodies
Forever caught in visual bliss honored to inhabit such a vivid space

    I will be on the next boat over! You should not have this paradise all to yourself! Joking aside, I enjoyed your heartfelt plea for a solace to complement your serenity.
