The Road

Ugonna Wachuku

 

 

You are the road.
I am the seeker.
Then, show me
the way.  

 

You are the river.
I am the boat.
Then, float me to
the head-waters.

 

You are the wind.
I am the eagle.
Then, glide me to
towering clouds and
unseen mountain tops.

 

You are the rain.
I am the flower.
Then, give me water
to grow.

 

You are the flower.
I am the butterfly.
Then let me touch
your ripe, blue bud
with a kiss.

 

You are the tree.
I am humankind.
Then, show me how
to climb.

 

Remember, you are the
road. I am the seeker.
Then show me the way.

 

You are angel.
Then show me heaven.
Yet, you are the road.
I am the simple seeker.

Dear Ugonna,  again, this poem brings me truth and spiritual pleasure. "You are the road, I am the seeker" - how wonderfully stated! Your analogies are drawn from the depth and simplicity of nature's beauty to make the reader enlightened by this path of knowledge. This verse fills me with deep peace and renewed hope. Thank you, Wendy

A lovely poem, Ugonna!  You illustrate so clearly how interdependent the various aspects of life are upon one another. We are always searching for answers, and so many of them lie in nature. Beautiful words!

This is my favorite work of yours, so far. You are skilled at using the small words to great advantage.

The pictures you paint here are clear and strong.
