My Paradise

 I'm borrowing a gorgeous country
 I may borrow it as often as I can

 I accept their courtesy and smile
 I smile back and are happy to provide a helping hand

 I am enjoying the sun in this sunny land
 I think of autumn and the rain back home

 I'm enjoying the day with all my enjoyment
 I hope the day could've been much longer

 I am delighted with the floral scent that fills the air
 I listen to the waves rolling along the seaside

 I listen to the prayer that comes from the mosque
 I feel a quiet peace lowered into my body

 I'm borrowing this beautiful country, just for fourteen days
 I am free of thoughts, free from time ..... I'm in my paradise Turkey

    Aha! I've never been there, but I'd love to go. This is a feast for the senses in super rhyming couplets. BRAVO!! Keith

    Anne, I love your resident spirit. Tourists never see the 'real' country. I felt the same way you do when I spent time on the Island of Crete..... Love Ya.... Jake
