Tranquil Beneath The Trees Poem by Obinna Kenechukwu Eruchie

Tranquil Beneath The Trees

Rating: 4.8

The moon and the stars share the sky's peace,
While the sun after roaming now sleeps.
Calm as mist silver, the night appeals
In a kind crawling across the streets.
Underneath these fifty four score trees,
I walk 'midst their calmness my heart seeks.
My soul dwells upon the nature's greens,
Edible with taste of hush that creams.
My heart airy running as wind speeds.

To joy's brink, my essence, penchant leads,
Like gazelle feathered across with beams.
In this park, the beechen frames are scenes
Of serenity, like mountains' peaks
On the orb, my essence tender sees.
Nature in a way as a guardian treats
One with cloud-like harmony one feels.
Of the walk bliss I 'am enjoying keeps,
Lit my essence tender to increase.

Dear Obinna, It is a well written poem, almost like a Keats' one. Well done. And I like some feelings and images that suggest Africa! I like Africa and Benin in particular. I suggest that you bring your culture and country more into your poems. Doing so would make them really special and real. We want to know more about you and your people. Make them alive as well as your nature, the antelopes and the lions, the African nights, the bronze sculptures and the wooden ones, the old forest spirits and maybe the new ones (globalization, Americanization, etc.) . All the best. Enea

This is a good poem I like the imagery. Draw back the rhyming is slightly forced and too wordy.
