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.
