My Little Paradise - a Poem

This is a little poem about my garden that I wrote one day when I was enjoying a nice sunny day at my garden.

My little Paradise

One bright Monday morning,

Sun brightly shining, birds tweeting,

Bushes swaying where the nice breeze flowing.

Flowers blooming, potatoes and tomatoes growing

Can't wait to harvest, cook and eat them.

Poppies bursting with different flowers blooming.

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 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 out and relax when I am at home,

away from work and everything.

In my 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 then

How I love those lovely nature visitors

that come and go for quick visiting

The apple, the pear and the plum trees swaying

in my own little paradise.


The bees are buzzing, butterflies keep flying

The weeds need weeding, 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 fruits and vegetables

That I enjoy harvesting and eating

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

In my own little paradise.


At the end of a long 13 hour shift working and caring,

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

the pretty flowers that have endless blooms

my home-grown organic fruits and vegetables

that I needed everyday to be healthy, fit and strong

Are all I needed to fight those nasty bugs and viruses

the likes of flu and Covid-19 virus spreading fast

across the world and everywhere

Oh! how I feel safe and worry free

In my own little paradise.


Now it's winter and very damp

All I can see are my fruit trees without a branch

All leaves out and looking sad

But fear not, its leaves will soon sprout

As the winter goes and spring arrives

Hope is there yet to come as the Covid-19 year ends

And the New year comes with hope

Hope to see new life begins at home

in my little paradise.

My little Eden, My little Paradise

Just wrote this when I was on my day off from work one day. I just feel so at peace and relaxed 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.

It is just nice to have that little space to sit down and relax. To enjoy the nature around us and smell the flowers scents, watch the flying birds, the beautiful butterflies, gaze at the beautiful blue skies, watch even the crawling ants who are hard at work and also enjoy the beauty around us because in this covid-19 era, we don't know how long we got on this place called earth. Sorry I am not being sad because of this nasty virus but I am just being practical and being real. It is always good to be prepared because tomorrow might not come for so many of us. This is real life and we just have to take one day at a time.
