I feel you close
All those of you
Who love the rose
Within you too,
When you’re near
All is fair
As virtue

When you’re gone
Or I the bridge
Have again undone,
Built a ridge,
I forget you,
Call you untrue
And intrigue…

But deep within
My human heart,
Beneath the skin,
Another part
Still remembers
In the fire’s embers
Our start.

There’s more in nature
Than what we see
Behind your second nature
Search quietly
There’ll you’ll find
Behind your mind
Your first nature…

The one that feels
The beings unseen
The one that heals
In the worlds between
Every night
Weeps for the Light

I feel you close
All those of you
Who love the rose
Within you too –
I know you’re near
I almost hear
And feel you…

A bond of love
Linked to the Dove
A sacred table –
All those who know
Don’t let it show…
The world calls it a Fable.

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije

  1. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your website and detailed information you offer.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed
    material. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.


    1. That’s a very interesting association you make – the poem is actually about the invisible beings of nature. Your association suggests that it is the same inner part within us which is alive and interactive when we love that also can perceive this magic in nature. Very true, I think! 🙂
