The African Queen

The African Queen
A woman ebony colored, brown, half-white half black or blue black
Her necklaces, meaningful beads and jewelry
Her gait, that of the African antelope
Her Majesty
Wait for her to extend her hand
Be nice and gentle
That means no gripping her hand tightly or pumping
No hugs, no kiss on the cheek, no touching the shoulder
Let Her Majesty initiate the conversation with you
While on the throne the departed royals watch keenly
She walks only but as their representative amongst the living
In her veins flows the blood charged with electrons of power
She is the living beauty and incarnate essence of fertility
Her smile is but a blessing to all
She is a lady of generosity and elevation of the mind
Hers is peace and sincerity Truth and loyalty
She inspires hope, joy, and loyalty in love
An essence of worthy ambition
