Lingering Paradise

say you about
a seaside place which has
no need of glass in window openings

heaters & air conditioners;
where restaurants cook, serve & dine
without walls while ripening fruit grows free?

are marked by
a little more rain but longer and
the Pacific is comfortably warm & clear all year;

sing you to sleep
and help greet the cool dawn with rich
aromatic coffee filtered through a sock, not yours.

could say you are fortunate
if you can get your most important
other to even consider using the return ticket home.

lingering question: Does
paradise stay if you stay? Most
depart for their part, assuring the stay.


(From the July 26th 2002 Entry
 in the Journal of a Computer Jockey
 by James I. Petersen,


Many of our cards are also available as art prints…
the perfect blend of poster and prose
suitable for framing.
