A Little Paradise

Finalist in the 'The Inside Story 2020' competition

A little paradise,
Where animals roam freely,
A place of contentment that is calmer than the sea.

A safe place for misfits,
A rainforest, a river,
A lavish field of flowers that never wither.

A sweet orchard of fruit,
A leafy valley of green,
A pocket of the world left untouched and unseen.

Secluded and secret,
The water’s comforting tune,
Whispers passionately in the light of the moon.
