Paradise Island
Paige, Age 11, Vancouver, BC

The ocean is a gallery of free flowing water
Through which amazing fish
Dressed in dramatic fuchsias, magentas,
Cardamom yellows, scarlets and brilliant teals
Glide to paint the ocean canvas

I feel the salt encrusted on my lips as I rise for a breath
Of sweet Island air
The sun glows on the crisp blue water
I slide down to watch the fingers of sunlight
Illuminate the underwater world
And time stops as I appreciate Paradise’s glory

I will soon be there again
I can already feel the fish tickling my toes
As I swim through nature’s gallery of beauty
The tropical island awaits me
