Sensual, Earthy Poems

I have read and followed many blogs with poems in them for the past four years. I have written a few worthless poems myself, but I just do not have talent for writing. The thing I do have is the heart to "listen" to poems. So I am grateful when I find poems that "speak" to me.

My friend, Fancy, writes poems on his blog. I have been reading his blog for a few years and I have the utmost respect for his talent and heart-rending words.

This is Fancy's latest poem:

Winter Rain
frisky tadpoles
in my visual field...
winter deluge

the sound
of silence after the first
winter rain...
how precious is the moment when
the sun turns the other cheek?

raindrops in Findon...
a flock of wild ducks come out
to play; stealing kisses

sowing the
seeds of desire after
the fall...
a cloud painted with
your smiles

the moon sings
yet you sit like the Pharaoh's cat

a new voice
in the 'hood foretold
and yet, the light
of old memory fills the
heart of many

(C) Lawrence T. Udo-Ekpo

The way he joins the wonders of nature and shows them with feelings is enticing and enchanting.
