Creating Space

After a late dinner I took a walk down to the dock by the lake,
Lying down on the dock, outstreched, I could feel the coarse wood on my legs,
A warm breeze wisps by, grazing it's breath upon the nape of my neck
As I hang my body down off the dock to reach the the water,
The smell of fresh cut grass permeates the air, and the lake is black as coal,
It is smoothe and shiny in the moolit sky, so calm and quiet,
I gently touch the water to form a ripple
That continues outward into the lake for yards and yards
Until my eyes can no longer see it as it melds with the stillness,
Consumed by the tranquility of the water,
And the resounding effect of my own vibration returns to me,
Refreshed and renewed, expanding my awareness
Into my own well within,
While I lift myself up into a sitting position,
And enjoy the subtle romance of the night.
I walk home, with nothing but the sound of my tennis shoes
As they pace me onward down the dirt path,
The distant streetlights forming tall shadows that shrink as I walk by each lamp post,
As I pass the lilac bushes, now in bloom,
The smell is so fragrant and it contributes to my placid mood,
So I pluck one of the flowers to place under my pillow.

I am asleep within minutes and awaken to the songbirds outside.

I like this.

A Day At The Farm

Once on a farm
There was a grand old barn
With an old cottage sat in the sun
And animals out in the run

The sun held high
Up in the sky
Glistened on the ground below
With the quiet murmur of the cello

The music was soothing
The animals weren’t moving
And the world stopped
As a grasshopper hopped

Then the hustle and bustle of cattle
Made the ground shake and rattle
As they moved towards the sound
And gathered all around

The farmer played the cello
It made the cattle mellow
Then silence hit the hills
As the farmer finished his trills

The day drawing to its end
Meant the cattle went back to the pen
Then peace and tranquillity roamed
And that’s what makes home sweet home

This poem is more of a child rhyme, its very pleasant.

Blue Waterfalls

Ugonna Wachuku 

 

Slowly, whistling winds and waves
embrace my soul on this voyage to
new reality. 

 

Like a river, I follow my course
through beckoning landscapes and 
simple seas.

 

Through moonlit forests of home
and beauty, I walk to the beat
from nature's heart.
There is silence in the air.
There is a song in my heart.
There is unfolding desire to
be all that I must be to you
and to humanity.

 

Down river roads and pathways,
I follow your footprints to
mountain tops where bald eagles
teach eaglets the mystery of
calmly soaring through life.

 

From high grounds and moving
landscapes on peaceful sea shores
hidden within you, the story unfolds.
From mountain tops of glory and 
beauty, you call me to fish and
dine with caring angels. 
There will be yet
another voyage.

 

When, finally, we arrive at the 
headwaters, there will be blue 
waterfalls and glad dolphins to 
welcome you and me.

 

These blue waterfalls will be 
our compass for the journey
ahead. Smiles and songs will
flower us to bountiful life.
Waterfalls of blue will define
our love for humanity!

 

And when I meet the coming,
new morning of hope and inspiration,
I will shed tears because your loving
blue waterfalls will be
my caring companion
for life!

A most beautiful piece of poetry. I sense the underlying tones of simplicity with a vivid journey to a long lost part of what was once common to all the peoples of this earth. A small touch of paradise. Flows well and tells a story that nature has been telling us for generations. I am very impressed and will be reading more of your works.  I feel that you have a natural talent in telling us what to look for in our daily lives. A piece well away from the humdrums of normality. Thank you for sharing. bern

This poem is absolutely beautiful. You walk me through this journey while making my emotions raw with love, curiously, wonder. I felt as though I was away from today and stepping into a clensing when I let go of dirty thoughts, feelings, notions to be be more than cleansed, but freed. If that wasn't enough you let me have one person to go along with me. I loved to have the allowance of company because it allowed me to share myself and a world to love. Thanks for the wonderful read.
