Where Nature and I Become One (A Poem Plus Happy (Belated) Birthdays!)

Submitted to Months of the year challenge – March (proudly)

ABC Wednesday (visits to Nature or Landscapes)

Poetry Potluck (Hobbies, Pastime, and Entertainments)

In this poem, I have written about my mountain climbing experience in March, 2010.

*****

Following the plan,

Under the Spring sun,

I arrived at a mountain park,

Where nature and I become one.

.

Directed by a trial map,

I began walking uphill, non-stop,

Once in a while,

I pause to catch my breath and staring at rocks in a pile.

.

I took photos to capture the views below,

A lake, parked cars, driving path are in my view.

I would look up

To see how far I was from the mountain top.

.

There are moments of confusions,

There are sentiments of hesitations.

“Keep Walking”,

I hear my inner voice talking.

.

Near the highest spot,

I spied a young couple walking above,

Their body gesture showed their love,

How long I had been going up, nonstop, I forgot.

.

When t is all the way up hill,

It is against my natural will.

After I eventually conquer the obstacles,

I believed that these were miracles.

.

The mountain is half bare,

Pariare dogs make their stare.

Wild cows walk wild walks,

Naughty hares talk Happy talks…

Everyday is a rally a poem by Ibok


I just want to read from you
hear what you have to say
and where your muse had wandered to.

Everyday is a rally
it brings me much pleasure
to know you will be here
to share my point of view.

Everyday is a rally
keeping us together
exchanging kind words
through fine and stormy weather.

Everyday is a rally
oh! I just love everyday.
Can you feel the feel I feel
in writing this to you?

Words from Ibok

Written in support of the  Thursday Poets Rally. Post on your Blog attaching the above logo in support of this movement…Super Cheers!

universe of love a poem by Trisha

A small galaxy
Created by magic
Twinkling together
A constellation
Of loving stars
Surrounding moon fairy
Queen of their heart.

A place in this big world
Where love is shared
Laughter is spread
Envy, anger, bitterness
Turn back from the gate
Love, admiration rushes in
Makes a place to stay.

This is our small universe
Shining in our own special way
A cluster of kindred souls
Longing to stay this way
To dwell together
In the world of dream
In the world of poetry.

Where clumsiest tries
Are judged with love
Weirdest works are praised
For we know in our hearts
We have only love to spread
Life is too short to waste
So we spread only light.

Words from Trisha

My priceless friend and classic poet Emmanuel inspired this post.

He is a marvelous poet and a friend to be cherished with all heart

A poem from Amanda

We can love together, we can strive together
We can play together, we can pray together
We can plan together, we can stand together
We can cry together, we can try together
The future of man is built on a plan
Of working together whenever we can
For together, forever we bring
The best, the good of it all

*****

A Poem by Kavita

He said it, I am just his echo
He meant it, I mean it ditto!

Yes, everyday is a rally
It brings us closer
Makes us pleasant and pally
And appreciate the other…

Cheers to Jingle for the Rally, Emmanuel for this amazing poem, and to all poets that make this Rally a rally!
Love you all…

Words from Rhythm of My Soul:

Poem by Emmanuel Ibok in support of the Thursday Poets Rally. I concur to every word in the poem! Thursday Poets Rally is one of the best things that has happened to me as a blogger; Reading thoughts of inspired bloggers,  receiving comments that pushes us forward, participating in events together… its almost like we are family here .

*****

Words and poem from Tracy:

My little contribution to the movement:

“Rally On!”

Poetry is our passion
Whether in, or out of fashion
We find our way to use this voice
For some of us, we have no choice
We have to speak with meter and rhyme
We think in a rhythm and write in time
As for me, I learn from each poem you write
I find new ways to get my voice just right
Each comment you make, I always tally
And look forward to Thursday for Jingle’s next Rally.

*****

Words from Alan:
