Wonderment takes flight

Creativity astir

Treasured paradise

The first and last lines of your poem "Paradise," "Ukulele's song" and "Treasured paradise" speaks peacefully to my soul as I look out the window and see snow falling that has covered the ground and the trees. Guess what? I am playing my ukulele, fingering this four-string instrument. Like you, there at the seaside, I am having a peak experience. Indeed, "Wonderment takes flight" and paradise is real, at least for a moment, Thank you Carolyn
