Paradise

by Chelsea Wozniak, 14, Blythwood, South Carolina

Nirvana,
Bright radiance lingers here,
Its gaiety
Is long-lived.

Children's feet are bare,
Coated only in layers of sweet
Summer mud.
They giggle and splash along the
Myriad of blue river ribbons
Flowing to an unknown destination.

Flowers dance in an eternal waltz.
Flamboyant in their symmetrical petals,
Velvet,
   Stained with perfection.

Branches and vines, entwined
As if painted,
Tints,
And over everything
Shades of tawny and emerald
Embrace the trees.
