Oh, to escape the daily grind
And yet right now that cannot be.
Iíll close my eyes and use my mind
To dream of what I long to see.

Unlock imaginationís door
And clear my mind of other things.
Look forward to what is in store,
To what my fantasizing brings.

The grass so green, trees reaching high
And wildflowers line the way
Of path beneath the sunlit sky.
Such beauty words cannot convey.

So red and plump, I cannot pass -
Delight in taste of berries sweet.
Remove my shoes, the luscious grass
Feels velvety beneath my feet.

I hear warm breezes blowing through
As if they have a tale to tell
Of glorious, inspiring view.
Embrace this moment, all is well.

This paradise so calm, serene -
Lie down to take it in, to rest.
Inhale perfume of lovely scene -
The splendor of creationís nest.

I do not want to leave behind
My bright, enchanting getaway,
Iíll lock this picture in my mind.
And visit it another day.

Oh, how absolutely lovely!! You took me on a vacation of the mind and what a joy it is! Beautiful images!!! Thank you!

Great job! Your meter was really good and you painted a nice get away for all of us.

Let's GO! :-)

A lovely retreat through words and imagery. Such a nice flow and feeling...very soothing. LIked the "unlocking" and "locking" - a true fantasy with clear beginning and end.

Nice command of topic, style, content. Well done!!

Ahhhh ... this leaves you with a sigh. Beautiful imagery - one can almost feel the fresh breezes. Good writing, good read - refreshing. A place we can visit in this poem. Thank you.

A great entry for the topic "Escape"! I felt so serene in your magical wonderland of nature...a beautiful poetic way to find rest. (the topic, however, was lock...which You did mention locking it away for another day). Well done.
