Nestled in Daydreams

I'm nestled in daydreams, safely tucked in a halcyon haven away from the stress that greedily feasts on me like a raven My Utopian realm offers a peaceful kingdom; a sanctuary where there is no arguing with any acrimonious adversary I take flight to a lowland vale, with gardens in full bloom safe from life's burdens, as if I'm still inside my natal womb Fields of wildflowers and carpets of moss are my landscape Orchard of grape vines and a citrus grove is where I escape Showers and sunshine are nuanced in my Eden of tranquility I live harmoniously with forest animals in absolute affability Blue skies brighten every day, darkening to indigo each night Wrapped in my lover's arms, beneath stars and soft moonlight l live in a multi-level tree house, sprawled in a stand of pine My neighbors are feral mustangs; a roaming herd of equine I built a porch that overlooks the view of my pastoral land watching eagles as they hunt and soar with feathers fanned I watch each stained glass sunrise as it surfaces from the sea and each sunset, when dusk paints pastels with grand esprit No fence surrounds my oasis, no flashing lights or blaring horns and I've hybridized my roses, so no longer do they have thorns There's some sanctity to be found in a divine place like this One of spiritual symbiosis and a bounty of benevolent bliss There's no known place on Earth where everyone gets along but in my sanctum, no one ever tells me I'm too headstrong I long for a refuge where I can take ample time to just relax where I'll not be faced with the entity of fear, called parallax When fire storms of frustration blaze much too high to douse I'll be daydreaming while climbing the stairs to my tree house August 18th, 2020 Sanctuary Poetry Contest Sponsored by Silent On

How did I miss this one, Jenna?! Maybe out of jealousy: Can't climb the ladder/steps to a tree-house anymore, 'sadly.' At any rate, congratulations to you on a memorable write and a top winner in the 'Sanctuary' contest. Chutes and Ladders, Gershon

John Lennon said, 'you say I'm a dreamer, but Im not the only one.' Your poem describes the wonders of a sanctuary perfectly and flows and rhymes very well.. Congratulations on your placement in the contest..
