Lost Somewhere In Paradise

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


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.
