Banks of the Amazon

Ugonna Wachuku 

 

On sustainability, climate change action,   

renewal of earth's environment, corporate

social responsibility, energy efficiency, 

responsible global trade and abiding 

nature conservation for beloved

humankind's survival: 

 

Life will continue her journey
on the dream's path. She will
take along every purity from
the earth. Every root shall be
moved for life through nature.

 

The dream has come to the land.
You shall ever know the love
from my soul to help humankind 

take sustainable action on this 

threatening climate change, 

globally. 

 

From bountiful banks of the
Amazon, I shall rise for the
voyage. I shall take with me
fresh fishes for new
beginnings. Trees of the
jungle will bow in
admiration and care

for earth's soil and

blood humankind.  

 

The dream shall kiss this
river in a subtle show of
universal love. On the face
of the Parana, the dream shall
glitter to let everyone know
the love that we share.

 

This spirit of the Amazon shall
take me to the breath-taking
height of precious Pico da
Bandeira. Then, let me know
what you think of the dream's
soul for earth's renewal, forever.

 

Cherish a whole life of oneness
across the land. Let love light
the dream's torch in the morning
of darkness and uncertainty from

this climate change on humankind's

enchanting earth home.

 

Let every eye see its the dream's

flame in the heart of Brasillia and

across the world. From the land's

depth, let Rio de Janeiro beat

drums for a Samba of peace and

love to let humankind conquer

this climate change, threatening.

 

Let time and seas of life kiss
the love of my being on the coast
of Sao Paulo. Let your soul
experience the dream's lovely joy
on the yearning lands of Salvador.

 

Let love and hope
dine with us in
Thecife for

humankind's

earth

Let the banks of
the Amazon and

for climate 

renewal
on
our
dying
earth
this
day
and
ever!

I especially liked reading this poem this afternoon. It's been a very hectic, stressful, chaotic weekend and this certainly lifted up my spirits. I cannot thank you enough for motivating me to try to smile. I hope one day, though, that something I write, type, share with you will help you as you've helped me. Let God bless you as you bless us with your presence daily.

Love is a virtue that we have been offered freely by our Creator, that all must embrace.Mankind has along way to travel to attain this universal dream: ``the dream shall kiss this river in a subtle show of universal love.On the face of the parana, the dream shall glitter to let evryone know the love we share. Nature and mankind are one, and are God`s expression of his infinite love.

We must keep alive the dream. The beauty of the Amazon must always remain in our hearts as well as in our lives... It must be done. We cannot lose the dream. Amy

I am always honored to hear from you. This is beautiful. My favorite line is, "Let love light the dream's torch....." You are a shining light. Keep shining. Mary

Oh Ugonna! You have written a visual poem: outlining the Tree of Live on the banks of the Amazone ... It speaks of Revelations and of the New Beginning. This Tree of Live is rooted in Love, and God is Love! "The dream shall kiss this river ..." "Let time and seas of life kiss the love of my being ..." You have a special and intimate relationship with the Creator! Love Myra

Ugonna, Now we have journeyed through the splendor of many facets of life; sadness, joy and finally love; our earth shall not die, for it will flourish through those that nourish,care and believe what our God has told us. Our earth is His earth and so it too shall be everlasting. Thank you for sharing. It was so nice of you to invite me. Please cont. to do so. Linda
