Where's your little bit of Heaven on Earth

There is one place I love to be,
My hammock beneath two apple trees.

A canopy of greens above my head,
Where thoughts weave round my mind like thread.

Till soft breezes play a leafy tune
And thoughts go quiet in my cocoon.

Peace descends and all is still,
Soft sounds from birds sent to chill.

Serenity is all around
In my bit of Heaven on the ground.

It sounds so beautiful to me Elizabeth. I have made a beautiful jungle out of my small garden. That is my paradise. I enjoyed your poem, my fiend

This must be a great spot because i felt like i was the one in the hammock. Or you are a great writer. Or both of those are true. I'd say both are true. Very calming write. Thank you.

A pity summer is over, I'd be out for a hammock. I don't have the apples trees for support, but I'll find a way next year. Drew me in, and left me calm and sated.

Lovely Elizabeth. My place is on my garden swing in my back yard where I am surrounded with my flowers and the buzz of bees and songs of birds. Great job here. God Bless, JB

Oh that sounds so good, a hammock between trees, a bit of sun, a good book, and dozing off :)
