Beauty

Enchanted



Have you ever felt as though you were

ENCHANTED ??

Like where-ever you looked there was

ENCHANTMENT!!

& the sounds you heard, the sights you saw,

the ground under your feet, the sky above,

everything & everyone acted like they were

ENCHANTED!!

I  HAVE!

WHAT A SIGHT!!!

Voicelessly dancing:

carelessly unwinding;

It's the end of her day.

So soft and light,

as slender as the crescent,

glowing in twilight.

Slowly gliding,

across the dark room,

Lost in her world,

totally oblivious,

of the dark night.

Unaware, a beauty,

dazzled my sight.

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!

A LOVE SONG

Hold me tighter and tighter

And dress me in your arms,

Leave your scent upon me,

Enjoy my feminine charms.



I will feel lovelier than lovely

When my lips impart to yours.

Moist, soft as satin roses

Long kisses to endure.



Move into my anatomy,

Imprint into my soul,

Drink from me my darling

My nectar as it pours.



Hold me in your arms tonight

Make my spirit soar,

Let me know with you I'm safe

In your arms I feel your warmth.



Let my eyes behold the portrait

Which shines in your brown eyes,

Of two lovers walking arm in arm

Beneath the rainbow of paradise.



In your arms the pains of life do cease,

Your kisses medicative,

With body eased and manipulated,

Our loved is consecrated.



Take me in your arms tonight

Make your heart my home,

Dance with me among the stars

Hereafter and evermore.

Dedicated to lovers.

SCENT OF CHERRY

Could you spare a moment to walk with me

down my favorite street?

Where sunlight glimmers sparingly

it's warmth enhances sweet,

the fragrance of the cherry blossoms

to permeate the breeze

where lovers walk and bees are busy

buzzing overhead.

Could you take a moment and walk with me

and gently hold my hand?



Could you take a moment to sit a spell

upon the lush green grass?

Where lovers linger telling tales,

bounding with romance,

as petals fall from cherry blossoms

delicately dance

where the air is filled with scent of cherry

sifting from the branch.

Could you take the time to dream with me

along this ripe pink path?



Would you take a moment and lean with me

against the wooden fence?

Where we'll lay our hands upon the rails

warming to the senses,

the thoughts of lovers walked before us

let your mind caress us

as sunlight shimmers through the blossoms,

gentle rays descend.

Could you take a moment to walk with me

or simply just pretend?

When You Smile

Ugonna Wachuku

 

Whispering waterfalls and
streams tell me beautiful
stories in my dreams.

 

Silent hearts sing me simple
songs of glory and hope.
In my dreams; in my tears
of joy and glad sorrow, I
watch you follow the river's
pathway to lands unknown; to
lush landscapes undefiled.

 

I watch you tell moonlight
stories in village squares
at home. I watch you follow  
nature's heartbeat. I watch
you dream new, loving dreams
for humanity:

 

There will be uplifting songs
from deep ancestral warriors
and villagers. In my tears; in
my joyful sadness, I watch you
take my hand:

 

I feel your presence. I feel
your love. I feel your inspiring
breath and subtle power because
when you smile, I am made whole.

 

When you smile, I behold a whole

new world on moonlit nights and
brilliant blue clouds. That smile
is all I need to run creatively
wild.

 

And tonight, I will be at
the village square once again,
waiting for you and that
inspiring

smile

you

bring.

MONA LISA

(vir Madonna Lisa di Antonia Maria Gerhardini)





daar huiwer dan jou wese

aan die kunstenaar se kwas

die mededoë van jou oë

vang hom vir ewig vas



versigtig! maan sy vingers hom

skep slegs'n sweempie skaduwee

om sَ die veemde Vrede weer te gee ...

jou mondhoeke bly stram



hy word vermoei deur sy groot taak

maar jy - Madonna Lisa di Antonia - ontwaak:

'n diepe deernis én Die Glimlag

het stil-stil jou gesig versag


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Die kunstenaar kan nie krediet neem vir sy talent nie ...

SY STAP OOR HEUWELS

(vir talita)





sy stap oor heuwels

die madeliefie-mooie

die kindmeisie meisiekind:

sal sy die roete terug kan vind?



sy pluk die geure

gesiggies en rankrosies

die kleintjie viooltjievrou:

sal sy die ruikerreuk onthou?



sy slaap in klowe

die sonskuwe sterretjie

die tere tjienkerientjee:

sal sy haar dagdrome ontvou?

Whisper

Ugonna Wachuku  

 

 

All for: Farah Didi of Maldives!

 

 

This new day, there is
heaven's healing in your
heart for the lofty land.
The rainbow begins a trail
to you and to nature with
smiles and caring colours.
Winds glide.
Stars watch
through your
eyes on blue
clouds.  

 

Shadows of the moon beam

depart for a journey to you.
Like birds of spring, you
walk through these flowers
to build new, loving dreams
on the moon's moving mild mind.  

 

Winds glide from your blue,
smiling sea into nature and
my heart. New inspiration
blooms for this eagle soul.
And islands in the sea are
born anew for the people's
well-being and refreshing
wholeness.  

 

Then, on distant islands
where drumbeats echo
hopeful rhythms, you
become a singing and  
soulfully uplifting,
flower face. in the
emerging sun of your
land's early dawn.
Hope is born anew.
Life is enriched
with heavenly
bounties for the
journey ahead.  

 

You whisper to the wind
and to me. You empower
dear dreams through hopeless
landscapes. You draw precious
patterns of the healing rainbow
on dark threatening clouds.
And there is
hope and
healing
for the
land
.
.
.

 

This new day, when the bountiful
rain meets you, you shall be headed
for home and love. There, whispering
winds, nightingales and whistling
pines shall tell you the story
of this healing love unchained
in everyone's heart and mine too.  

 

On fertile farmlands of home
and today, eagles begin to come
home with the hope of hearing
your enriching story:  

 

Just whisper.
Whisper to those
eagles. Whisper
to nature and to
me. And your
bountiful story
will be told.
Just whisper
and the land
will be born
anew with
heavenly
hope and
care in
bounties
of the
early
morning
beauty.  

 

In your caring eyes,
this new day, there
is hope and healing for
the land. Just whisper
and the earth will hear
with heaven's caring
heart
in
you
!!!!
!!!
!!
!
!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

"Whisper" is dedicated to Farah Didi - this Maldives light of the human spirit and creative essence because she gave us: "she rose among the waves." And surely, this land of her soul will be born anew with heaven's peaceful care beyond the waves!
