My little Paradise

One Monday morning,

I decided to do some planting in our little garden

Sun brightly shining, birds tweeting,

Bushes swaying where the nice breeze flowing.

Flowers blooming, potatoes and tomatoes growing

Can not wait to harvest, cook and eat them.

Poppies bursting with different flowers colouring.

Lots of goings on in my little garden,

In my own little paradise.


Roses doing well, Californian poppies blooming as well

Strawberries growing with fruits nearly ready for harvesting.

Pak choi flowering for next year's planting

My beautiful daisies and lilies bursting with lovely flowers as well

I couldn't ask for more than a nice little paradise like this.

Just a place to chill and relax when I am at home,

away from work and everything.

A place I can call my very own little paradise.


Love to hear the birds singing

The seagulls flying here and there

The blackbirds singing and the crows squawking

The pigeons come and visit now and again

How I love those lovely nature visitors

that come and pop in for a little visit

The apple, the pear and the plum trees swaying

What a wonderful day and a wonderful place to be in

in my own little garden and heaven at home

in my very own little paradise.


The bees are buzzing, butterflies keep flying

The weeds need weeding and the grass need cutting,

The plants are growing and the seeds need planting

Oh, how I love working in my little garden

Full of home grown organic fruits and vegetables

That I enjoy harvesting and eating as well

How wonderful it is to have a place you can call your own

Little paradise in my own little back garden.


At the end of a 12 hour shift caring for the people I care about

All I want to do is seat and enjoy the beauty of my little paradise

the pretty flowers that greet me and cheer me up,

my home-grown organic fruits and vegetables

that I needed everyday to be healthy and fit

To keep me away from those nasty flu viruses

that seem to come and attack me each year

Oh! how I love my little garden,

my very own little paradise.

My little Eden

Just wrote this when I was on my day off from work one day. I just feel so at peace and relax when I am in my little back garden which I call my little paradise. Just pottering about and seeing to my plants, vegetables and flowers makes me happy and content. It is nice to have somewhere to chill out after work.

My little Paradise

Have you got a place in your home where you call your own paradise?

      Hey Linda. You are yourself and that's what I enjoy about the poem. Your poem shows how loving you are towards your garden and the close bond both of you have. Haha. It really takes us into your head and your garden! :) Nice. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Jodah, I am not a true poet like you. You write lovely poems, I just had a go to see if I can actually write one. It is one moment of madness for me.

      Your poem gives the reader the ability to feel like they are there in your garden with you, helping you with the planting. Very realistic and creative. Nice pictures, too. You have a nice little paradise there.
