An adventure often withheld
Clambering in heavens shrouded
Likened to a gazelle ensnared
Across leaps of many white clouds

Peering down below wondering
Skipping through whims of fantasy
In guarded joys of blessed wailings
A pleasant surprise unlikely

Where are all the violence and fights
None are perceived no untoward signs
Conflict resolution questioning rights
To dispossess nations and all of mankind

Having their fortune in their hands
Are bared as an open book to see
Wealth and expanse of good lands
Blessed with food for the needy

Chunks of greenbacks aplenty
Not grabbed nor fought but to hold
Thrown to the winds extravagantly
And no takers for the bags of gold

If only Paradise is staged unabashedly
On earth with such ideal settings 
The world is a safe place to live in truly
Not to be but no end to hoping

Written for Mrsupole's Theme Thursday -  Fantasy


  1. We live in hope! I like your poem and the alignment of Paradise-one can dream

  2. To find such a spot where peace is all around would sure be grand. Doubtful it will ever come across the entire land

  3. We can only hope for such peaceful and beautiful things ~ Wishing you Happy Holidays Hank ~ Cheers ~

  4. Hank, this definitely is the season of Hope! And I keep hoping!

  5. This is the place of choice and decisions, later we PLAY permanently!

  6. we can always hope...and each of us can bring a little bit of that peace on earth as well in our actions and attitudes each day...and those are things that money can not buy...
