~~~ Paradise Unleashed ~~~

Updated on May 22, 2013

~ " Paradise Unleashed " ~


Sweet summer shall be upon us, yet again,

Trailing upon coat-tails of the Ides.

Everywhere, awash with new life;

Last seasons' winter wanes in power,

Disabled in chagrin; disqualified by uplifting change;

Now, only offering an 'ignotum per ignotius', for its passing,

During this celebration of light.


Heaven's spotlight bathing creation;

Health, and vitality toasting mankind,

Injecting surreal aplomb into nature.

Wild flowers reach out with tendrils,

To grasp infinity;

Green flags of report,

Swaying, in the gentle breeze.


Bluebells, summoned from their slumber,

Explode into life; myriads of flora,

Subtly springing into being, under the watchful eye

Of no man, but perceived by the astute.


Illuminations' hue brings joy to many.

This time of plenty will not be ignored;

Hearts weigh less, and the day,

Seized by eager lovers, ardent for sensations of Eros;

Fertile honey's, fuelled by May's giddy cocktail

Of heady expectation.


The labourer does suffer the aerial torch,

Jabbing their flesh like a gimlet,

In this self-inflicted, midday tort.

Yet,the self-same sun drives the young into frivolity,

And carefree abandon, exposing the quiddity

Of their impertinent intoxication.


Hope is here to stay, this day;

Shall stretch into the forever, it feels.

Barbecues, and cook-outs for contented families;

Promenading courtship and romantic picnics

For love-struck couples.

Breathe deep of the scented air,

And know that you're alive, you happy people.

      Well romeo you have done it yet again! I like how you used the term "eros" instead of referring to the basic word love. Another great read. The Latin language is a great touch to this poem.

      Hey,Thanks Anna;that's really kind of you-that section was my favourite,too.It is a hopeful narrative,as it's looking pretty gloomy here again,today-typical British weather.as usual.

      Have yourself a great day!

      Yours Sincerely,

      When you're around,I am always'one of those happy people'....

      Although the bluebell is lovely,you are lovelier still;when the 'green flags of report' wave,they usher me towards your beauty.

      Thank you for your always wonderful input,and sentiments. :)

      Yours Truly,
