With vast views,

a lotus dam,

a glen of caged nymphs


I explore it’s delightful treats

rainforest behind

river then ocean in front

peace - 1

not close to any town or shops

but near enough to everything

natural beauty, fresh air and tranquillity


peace and privacy pervade

a few cows too distant to hear

town lights on the far horizon

peace - 1 (1)

double rainbow welcomed me

life here will be conducive

to meditation practice


couldn’t ask for more

no idea what’s in store

but this is home for me

peace - 1 (2)

What is your ideal living situation?

Have you found it yet

or still dreaming and planning …


  1. I’m so glad you’re there! I hope and pray you figure all the amenities soon.
    My ideal place would be somewhere like the lake district. Loads of green. Big gardens, trees, just green, by water, near a beach, rambling hills. I’d love a waterfall and pond on my property. The ranch:) if I ever overcame fear of animals I’d have some animals too, not sure which.

  2. I’ve never seen “a glen of caged nymphs,” but I can’t imagine that they’re happy about being confined. However, I take solace in the words of Maya Angelou: “Even the caged bird sings.” 🙂

  3. I am sooooo happy for you dear Kate.
    The double rainbow, the lotus and the nature it’s just good omen.
    I am sure you are in safe place even so remote.
    Take care.

  5. Beautiful! I’m so happy for you, Kate! 🙂 Wishing you joy, love, peace, laughter, and good health in your new home!
    Your photos and poem make me think of things like: contentment, “bloom where you are planted”, Mother Nature’s masterpieces, renewal, breathing, smiling, and just feeling at home!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    • Robbie I’ve lived in the outback, in London, on the coast, in the Himalayas … basically I can live anywhere but it would be nice to live here the rest of my life … depends on the kindness of my landlords 🙂
