Hope

Lonely Clouds

 

Ugonna Wachuku

 

I dream through the night! 
When all hope is won
Love will be my strength
That's my hopeful dream! 

 

Lonely clouds: 

Where my dreams come true
Where I am full and whole! 

Love is all I dream 
And all hate is gone! 

 

Bounties of the night
That's my hopeful dream 
Where I am full and whole! 

 

Lonely clouds: 

 

Where my dreams

come true! 

 

Eagles carry me
over meadows and sea
to the land of my dreams 
Where I am made whole!  

 

When all faith is bloomed
That's my hopeful dream!

 

Every shadow of

doubt is lost on

this meadow land
Where I dream

through the night! 

 

When all hope is won, 
Love will be my guide! 
That's my hopeful dream
All for you, 
for humanity!

 

Lonely clouds: 

I dream through the night
Where I am made whole! 

 

Eagles carry me over

meadows and montains
where love is so real! 

 

That's my hopeful dream 
All through the night, 
All for you:

Dear Ugonna, 


I am drawn in the breathtaking simplicity and eloquence
of your poem. You capture life's truth and hope with such poignant
beauty and understanding. This reads like a psalm from "The Book of
Psalms" and infuses my spirit with a serene faith in both The Creator
and a compassionate humanity. 


Thank you for your blessed insight,


Wendy    faith.

Ugonna,


What a wonderful, wonderful soul you have!  This is so
beautiful... I have always associated clouds and dreams with each
other for they have so much in common.
Your writing is so pure and heartfelt! Thank you for the glimpse
inside your heart.


Peace and love ~~~~ Dougie ~~~

Ugonna, 


I have been reading some of your poetry and I love it. You have such a
wonderful flow and the things you write about are so inspiring:


"Love is all I dream 

And all hate is gone"


this stands out because so many people dream
about this too...as do I.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In 1996, Rod Stewart, with Kevin Savigar, performed Every Beat of My Heart with the Scottish Euro '96 Squard - for a CD generally titled Purple Heather. My poem: Lonely Clouds was inspired by Every Beat of My heart. The proceeds from this Stewart CD is meant for the Dunblane Fund - in memory of those beautiful and enchanting 5 year old kids killed by a gunman at Dunblane primary school on Wednesday 13 March, 1996. My poem: Lonely Clouds, just as my poetry collection titled: Hope for Dunblane, is also a deep-felt tribute - in remembrance of those lovely children of God's eternal kingdom and their families!

All of Me

Ugonna Wachuku

 

The sea is so silent
on distant horizons.
Heart-beats tell stories
of love and parting.

 

Like whistling waterfalls,
I follow your path in nature.
I follow the dream of your
disarming beauty.

 

I follow the welcoming
road to your deep inspiration.
And in your emerald eyes, life
is born anew for humanity and
for little me.

 

Now, I am back to the
pathway; back to those
sweet dreams you hold
for me in your soul.

 

So, when I tell you
stories from my caring
soul, do not wait, take
these stories within you
and remember that whatever
you do, I'll always love you.
Remember all of me
even when I am gone
because just one day,
I'll surely go the
way of all mankind.

 

Remember all of me,
if you will, even
when I am gone.
And indeed, in your
enrapturing
emerald
eyes,
life
will
be
born
anew
for
humanity
and
for
l
i
t
t
l
e
me.

All Of Me was also the title of a song my father used to sing, from
the fifties, I think. (Don't take my word for that). But that is why I
clicked on the poem from your index.  I love these two lines:  I
follow your path in nature. I follow the dream of your disarming
beauty.  Very interesting to read and interpret in several ways.

Dear Ugonna  An evening spent in your poetic presence ...  So many
stories to tell;  so many songs to sing.  Life is forever Arrival and
Depature.  Dreams are universal breathing: the inhalation of
everlasting yearning.  Ah, to follow the Path, reaching at last
distant, evasive horizons!  Myra Sun

What a wonderfull poem. Men, you're great! You know what, you made me
remember the time I was in college(Brazil), I made friends to the
eternity and for a moment I was traveling on the time and felt between
then again. We had a good time together, we enjoyed the nature there,
every single act, every single word. This is a kind of love, when you
find friends and can count on them, you found a treasure. And your
poem made me live my precious moment again. Thank you for be an
inspired poet! Keep going, you're on the right way! See ya!

The Eagle Soars Tonight

Ugonna Wachuku

 

Through green hills and

misty mountain sides,

dreamy dusk breaks in on me.  

 

Shadows of the moon-beam

gather around me for the

journey ahead. There is a

dance of souls and minds.

Tonight, the owl hoots

no more because I have

landed. The eagle is here.

 

On welcoming mountain tops

of home and beauty, I watch

these majestic name-sakes of

mine soar through blue skies

and caring clouds of heaven.

 

Breathless, I learn from them.

Enchanted, I watch their visionary

strength. I am calm. I am

overwhelmed. I am humbled.

I am inspired...

 

Tonight, I must start a journey

to new beginning. I must fly

stormy and peaceful skies through

life.

 

But then, I have learnt from

these name-sakes of mine. Like them,

I must soar tonight under moonlit

skies of home as I make my way

to new dawn on earthly clouds.

I will surely soar tonight.

 

Tomorrow awaits me with joy

at the landing field of love

and painful joy. These towering

mountains will not conquer me

because

I am Eagle;

and I will

indeed,

soar

tonight,

and

into

heaven's

new

dewy

dawn

and

a
l
w
a
y
s
!

So Majectic of a read Ugonna!  This line in particular, "Tonight, the
owl hoots no more because I have landed. The eagle is here."  Made me
think of the tiny caterpillar, how he one day just disappears into his
cocoon because he knows the time is now, for his emergence to become
the butterfly he was meant to be.  I truly enjoyed the whole piece.
Thank you.

I find myself drawn to the poems with eagle references. The splendor
of the eagle (your namesake for which you should be proud) simply
surges though this verse. You choose your adjectives wisely (caring
clouds), and skillfully control the flow of the poem so that it
captures the grace and nobility of the eagle and its message. You take
the beauty of God's creation and make it unforgettable.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My name Ugonna means Eagle of God or Eagle of the Father. Like my essence-sakes amongst God incredible creations, I am wonderfully made to soar and achieve with keen vision and strength. Indeed, I love my name so much because it creatively inspires my life in a very powerful but humble manner! There is an enriching beauty of the spirit within the depths of my creative soul. Welcome to my world of love, peace, tears, pain, inspiration and empowering creativity!
