A Simple Start (poem)

Updated on July 3, 2015

I dreamed so long to wake in paradise

That suddenly somehow that dream came true

I kissed a world my senses would entice

And challenge everything I thought I knew


The sun was warm there in sweet flowers arms

Whose fragrance seemed to sing upon my heart

And all around I’m taken by the charms

Which have no end yet share a simple start


A simple start that soon would shake this dream

Who lost his eyes to see simplicity

Now paradise must listen to me scream

What use to me when eyes no longer see


And now I hear the stars as they pass by

I sense a rhythm lost so long ago

And though I learn I cannot share the why

A simple start was not for man to know

      What a dream Martin. I wonder if he ever woke up from it. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      This is beautiful, Martin. When we open our hearts and minds, our eyes will see.

      Aw, why must paradise be lost ...

      Really lovely imagery and captivating music video on reality ...

      Reality can be a bummer at times unless it is paradise.

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      God bless you and yours always,
