Paradise speculation

Tell me, what is Paradise
this strange ideal that everybody dreams of
but which no one yet has seen;
but ask me, for I know it.
The problem is, it is not practical
nor physical nor tangible in any way
but purely intellectual,
a utopia, which however does exist
and everyone is well familiar with
who knows about ideals and dreams and beauty
and the charm of knowledge and its acquisition.
If it were to be defined at all,
I would fain liken it
to sitting down in peaceful studies
listening to soothing music
letting creativity flow forth.
That is the only Paradise I know,
and that is good enough for me.

This too, is the paradise I know. A contented mind with enough gentle input to keep it busy, yet not enough to make it work.
Paradise , in my view, is just a state of mind or perception.
I enjoyed this Christian, Thank you.
