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

Ugonna,  This is a lovely poem of hope and dreams of making the world a better place.  Would that these dreams come true!  Best regards, Helen


Amy Riberdy

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


Misty Lackey

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

Sing me a Song

Ugonna Wachuku


That the moon may shine;
that the stars may bloom;

that flowers may blossom;
that birds may sing:


Sing me a song.
Sing me a song from
the depths of the sea.


Sing me a song from
the love in your heart.


Sing me a song from
the beauty that is you.
Let me feel the beat
of your heart at noon
when the sun is high
on the horizon.


Let me be near you
and in you for the
love that we share;
for the care you


Let me not depart
from your presence.


Let the smiling stars
be there to welcome us
at the beginning -
from lush, inspiring
landscapes and meadow
sea shores.


Let humanity learn
from the love within
our love. Let angellic
hands play this music
of the bountiful soul
from generation to


Just sing me a song.
And let me be who
I am because I too
will sing you a song
from my deep soul;
and let you be who
you are!

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.

In dreams of love I feel no pain, and wish the dreams would last
forever. But unfortunatly dreams don't last forever.. but great poem.
I really like it.

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 ~~~

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 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!
