A Song, A Scent

A song, a scent, suddenly I am in paradise
A sunny place, a happy place, a fun place 
Gravity feels a little lighter on weights, I'm weightless    

The breeze sings a calming song to my ears 
On tree branches, swinging on dance melody  
The flowers, bright and rich of hibiscus, red 

The sun plays disco with reflecting lights 
On the surface of aqua, like diamonds   
It sparkles, on rainbow colours, the sky so blue 

Even the aluminium roofing sheets join in  
Like an open invitation to symphony of happiness
The birds, the insects, the animals, come out to play  

A ripe mango lay hang on trees, coconut, cocoa   
Inviting me to plug, with taste on delight 
Every single senses in my mouth alive 

The shade gives me resting lie 
To sit and ponder, to enjoy every bit of nature
For here I wonder and awe life in treasures 

This is my utopia, my happy place
In the gardens of joy, in nature, on memory lane  
A scent, a song, suddenly I am in paradise 

Some where in my childhood memory 
Some where up on the mango tree 
A scent, a song, suddenly I am in paradise

  4. A scent can trigger wonderful memories associated with it.....a beautiful poem...

  5. Hi Kodjo,

    I really enjoyed this poem, it is such a happy poem and does put one into paradise. I really think this would make a great song too and I just keep singing it in a reggae tune in my mind. I love reggae music and it is my favorite kind. Makes me want to sway and dance into that paradise too.

    Thanks for painting such an aroma filled poem for us for this weeks Theme Thursday. Lots of fun here.

    God bless.

  6. Precious imaginative scent singing, Kodjo.
    Hope you can reach this lovely paradise, not an utopia.
    When reading your words Schiller's Ode to Joy came to my mind.
    Thanks for sharing.
