Live Imagery - Poem by Obinna Kenechukwu Eruchie

My fancied escape on a time lone,
When the wind has refrained from its moan
To become at night, the sleepy drone.

Mind's ranging eye comes on like a phone
Transmission, or a silver beamed cone.

Live imagery on brain's screen is thrown
Like Safari full of wildness known,
Where limbs and wings all in splendour shown;

Figures playing in brightness I tone
Up in thought, which to delight is prone;

In me how passion cloud-high has grown,
The air-immense thrill it invites blown
To the pinnacle, the mount does own.

The exotics to treasure are sown
As pearls of peace in me to be flown;

Hunting I 'am in fantasy's zone
Of scenes wild, which beam beauty I hone
As words penned like a polished-prized stone.

    Great poem, with an interesting, single rhyme scheme.
    I wonder how you must have felt when you wrote this...

    it seems that the construction of this work is very familar...the whole piece dictated by a single rhyme scheme....?

    poetry is sculpture in verse....we have to know what to throw out and what to keep...so that what remains is all that we need.... (Report)Reply

    Like Safari full of wildness known

    The line above reminded me of my experience Livingston, Zambia.
    Yes the Safari, beautiful to experience; and it was a chance that would not be given to me till I live (unless if I will be given another chance to travel to that beautiful continent, Africa) .

    Anyways, your poem is full of in-tense feelings- the feeling of wonder and awe.

    Keep it up…and learn from its message of beauty.

    Obinna, Even though I think this poem exhibits an excess of monotonous rhyming scheme, I like your ideas and imagery, and salute you, friend. (Report)Reply

    I have to say this is pretty good but just the first words you first said talking to me your work isn't as good as you think Robert Frost is still high over you. (Report)Reply
