Fantasy Island

I'm badly in need of a holiday It happens every year at this time Need to go where the palm trees grow And the sun shines all the time A total break from everyday stuff And the frigid Canadian winters Somewhere where the moon above Causes the waves to shimmer An island paradise away from it all The every daily trials at home To lose myself on a fantasy island No email, no internet, no phone A place where time doesn't exist Where nothing is done in a rush The pace is slow and oh so easy With surroundings green and lush The vision I see is heaven on earth Hope one day it will all come true Till then I'll shiver and curse out loud And my lips again turn blue!

I know you would be very Welcome becos,,, Its right here down under, in the land of Oz....(Tralia that is) .. You should really take this suggestion of mine ,,,,because its nearly summer time.

Maybe we need to declare "Happy Poetry Days" where you can't write anything depressing until you've either read or written a cheerful poem first!

Oh it is so good to get away to a place where time does not exist, where the sun shines all the time, where the moon causes the waves to shimmer and where we are warmed to the bone and leave the shivers far behind sipping on a coconut. ((Hugs))
