So Sweet Is Life

Every now and then ,everyone is an island and every now and then, I am an island too Till,I see the first pink iris blooming in my garden and one little bluebird singing on my porch Till,I feel the sun-kissed dew melting on my skin I watch the floating clouds pass by like puffy candyfloss I hear my neighbour's laughter,as She walks her dog I smell fresh air's spiced cinnamon and listen to a song. I feel serene,just being in the moment Watching seagulls soaring high Whilst the most beautiful rainbow arches the celestiene sky Peace fulfill my heart knowing how loved I'm to be here God blissed my life with rich treasures and He kissed away my tear So happy I am today for each dawn and every sunset for each star,and crescent moon every meadow and each valley the high mountain and the dune For each child yet to be born For the cosy little cottage which protects us from the storm. So joyful I am ,for this stillness within me as down the verdant hill I stroll Spume's spray waft upon my feet as I reach a pebbled shore Against winds I ride in silence Feel the breeze upon my face I watch multi- coloured hues of leaves burning in flame's blaze So tranquil my cobalt night now I'm in solitude but not alone Watching fire-flies'little lanternes glow upon my home sweet home.

You have described the eternities we are priveledged to live in moments. Those times that time seems to stand still and our breathing becomes imperceptible. It is during those moments that there can be no doubt of God's existance. Lovely poem Charmaine!

You have the grace to love the obvious, which many humans fail to achieve Charma. The way you play with color in this poem with innocent and noble excitment is beautiful. "Spumes spray waft upon my feet..." that tickles! I also like "God blissed your life..." J.A.B.

As we say here down South, 'Your mama musta raised you right!' I'm not just flattering you here; this is the truth... I have NEVER known anyone so at peace with themselves, so able to live in the present moment...The exact opposite of me. Straight to my favorite poems list (which you are beginning to dominate)
