Paradise on Earth

There is a remote realm,
where a secluded path,
leads to a quiet place
deep, deep into
a virgin forest’s green.

Right where a clear stream
pours into a silent pond,
among bees, berries and birds,
some healthy food slowly grows
within a rich and sunny plot.

A modest hut there stands
with just one room,
a floor of stone and wood.
And under its thatched roof,
a table, pens, some paper and books.

Good friends always find their way
to sit and rest around a fire place,
sharing cups of tea, and the occasional wine,
for a lifetime of poetry and reflection,
under the Sun, the Moon and mantle of stars.

Marcus Antoninus
