Share the Dream

Ugonna Wachuku  


Day breaks in on us slowly. 
Today's journey through life 
will be full of riddles and 


Life will surely bring new
suprises and strange

shadows to humankind,



Shadows of this new day
will certainly accompany
us through inspiring village
paths and forests of hope

and inspiration.


On our way to the farm,
new meaning to life will
be found, with creativity

and innovation through  

ancestral green leaves

in home forests. 


Ancestral footprints will
be followed on our way to
plant hopeful crops for our
coming harvest.


Whether there will be a 
harvest, we cannot tell. 
The world have changed so 
much since grandma and 
grandpa were children 
in the family.  


Then, our ancestors could 
smell good weather and 
refreshing rain. Now, we 
smell cyclones, nuclear 
pollution and destructive 
rain filled with this flaming 
scent of climate change

and inflicted instability.   


Anyway, my friends, we

are headed for the farm:  


We must plant our crops
for hopeful coming harvest.
We have fresh, good hope

for healing of humankind.  


We have bountiful, fresh
dreams and love for beloved

humankind's thriving survival 

on this trying earthly journey

called life. 


Our dreams are real and
worthy enough to go round

enchanting earth with love

and family oneness.


Come, my love.
Come, humankind.
Share the dream
of my simple soul.


Cape of Good Hope
darling, share our
dream of bountiful
new harvest and

healing for humanity. 


Come, my friends.
Walk with us through
ancestral village paths
to our farm of hope,

healing and love



Come, all of you
who will:


Globally, walk with us,

gladly, this new day;

for humankind's

A poem filled with hope for the beauty of the old world to survive in spite of the destructive nature of a modern life that threatens to destroy the beauty of the land & a way of life..  Amy

for some reason I could see this poem on a huge flag or on a huge blue sky for the whole world to see feelings that set free the mind on todays nature and world..



Bonjour(Swiss) Ugonna,  As I read your poem, I thought about those who did not make it to another day, following the attacks on New York twin towers and on the Pentagone.  Yes each day is a day of hope even if the changing world around us threatens to rob us of our subsistence, loved ones and hope.  Each day is a new beginning not only for us but also for the coming generations.  We have to pass on the dream unless we die.  This poem is fitting for such time as this.  Thank you  Michelle

For some reason one of my favourite books comes to mind, "The Good Earth", by Pearl S. Buck. A book which still lends passages to my mind, years after reading it for the second time. Of course I would like to think that most of us do 'keep the dream' of green pastures close to our hearts. Again the form of the last three stanzas is a goblet. And the wine flows freely dripping from the stem. An inspirational image!

This poem shows that sometimes we don't know what life can bring us. Only with Hope and understanding does we seem to move forward in life. keep up the great work
