My Island of Peace



Will you join me on my island?

A place where there is no war,

Only peace and love.

A place where all are equal,

And rancour is not allowed.

A place where we all work together

For the good of all,

Not the few.

Where food is abundant,

And we all eat our fill

Of the foods that tempt our palettes,

And hunger is non-existent.

A place where nature is allowed to survive,

And the animals show us the wonder

Of their so valuable lives.

A place of music, art and words

That can create so many emotions within

Our lives of contentment.

A place where death only comes

In contented old age.

Knowing that you have done your best

For everyone around you,

And can leave the island

Knowing that those left behind

Will only talk of you with love and respect.

Will you join me on my island?

            Why not? 🙂 Beautiful poem Andy. This reminds me of the poem "Where the mind is without fear" by Rabindranath Tagore

            • Goldfinch60

              Totally agree kivous. Just read the poem and we are obviously of the same mind.

                      Will be there. fallenAngel1 had mentioned a ‘picnic of poetry’, in summer, so MPS poets can gather on your island. Food from all round the world! Lovely.

                      • Goldfinch60

                        So true, a picnic of poetry and food from around the world sounds so fabulous. I would be happy to cook for you all.

                          Will definitely join you in your island if only there was one. A beautiful poem Andy really enjoyed it

                          • Goldfinch60

                            It would be good to see you TKKKK, thank you.

                            I am on my way to join your wondrous island my friend. What could be better than doing our best for love and respect.

                            • Goldfinch60

                              Very true Fay, love and respect is always worth all.

                              What a super idea...I'd be there tomorrow.

                              On the other hand these idealistic ideas tend to miss out on some rather important stuff. Now then, such an idyllic island is going to appeal to disrespectful lazy wasters as much as it will to anyone else, how do you decide who clears up after such people especially if theyre not prepared to dig their own toilet and backfil.. etc etc etc

                              Great uplifting poet especially in these troubled times when the planet needs us to be more caring ans respectful of our environment.

                              • Goldfinch60

                                Thanks d a, the island will only accept those who will do their bit to help all so there will be no 'lazy wasters'.

                                Thanks for you kind words d a.

                                • Goldfinch60

                                  Thank you John, much appreciated.

                                  It would be pleasure to live on such a beautiful island. I wish we could find that island soon.

                                  • Goldfinch60

                                    It certainly would spilleronsheet, it certainly would.
