I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
I thought I would share with you a lovely poem I once put in my blog about the life I led in Riga, Latvia and shared with our cat, Sid.
Spring and summer mornings,
wake us as the sun is dawning,
to a chorus of birds,
singing in the apple tree.
Rushing out to greet the day,
in the garden I see,
the beauty that surrounds me.
Everything so lush and green,
flowers bursting into bloom,
roses, opening to the rays of the sun.
You came out,
with a worried frown
and I laughed,
as I told you –
to put a smile on your face.
Look about you everywhere –
we are lost somewhere in paradise.
Our cat Sid,
is climbing the apple trees.
he’s found his paradise in our garden.
Come take my hand,
look at our house,-
it may not have towers and gold all about,
but in it, we are king and queen
and our four-footed friend Sid is the prince.
Come take my hand,
let’s walk along our country roads,
where we can enter medieval forests,
full of mystical creatures
and when the day is done
and the moon and stars come out,
we can cuddle and kiss,
feel the passion that brings us such bliss.
Two lovers that can express,
their feelings without a single word,
lost somewhere in paradise –
along with our cat Sid.

Rasma, I love this poem! It gives us a glimpse not only of your home in Latvia, but the landscape, the interaction between you and your husband (I love the way you had him look around to see how grand life for the two of you - and Sid- really was), and the love you shared.
Outstanding story-telling in this poem, Rasma!

Glad you enjoyed it Chitrangada,
Glad you enjoyed it, John. Yes, the garden was so large it was like being in paradise,
Thank you, Ann and it was,
Thank you, Chrish,
You're welcome, Bill and I am glad to hear it made you smile. When I lived there I had a smile pasted on most of the time,
You're welcome Pamela and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Beautifully expressed poem, nice imagery. And, I agree that when two people are in true love, there is no need of words.
Thanks for sharing.
