We all get inspired in different ways.. Could be a song or a movie or maybe just the way the wind blew today.. Well I was inspired to write this piece below by a wonderful poet and friend with dreams that connected our thoughts...hope you like it...  Michael

                                                   "Paradise Found"

                                           Walk with me into a paradise...
                                       Up steps to where hearts shall rise...

                                      Rhyming letters and strumming tunes...
                                       Flowing dreams like floating balloons...

                                        Floors of love with untouched peace...
                                   Where a poets world could drip with ease...

                                         Take a ride on this Ark of dreams...
                                   Over land to sea we connect like streams...

                                   inspired by ~Sukmawati Komala's~~ dreams..
                                                  now my dream too..
