Deep cleansing

  Cleansing, pure
 refreshes the world
 Turns rubble to ash
Cleans skin from bone

Beauty. Fluorescent view. Illuminates the world. She shines brighter than twinkling stars. My love.

Ghost of the Winter Morn

heavy , dense
slow silent creep
chilled to the bone

We are Leaves

We are Leaves

We are like leaves that fall from trees
As wombs contract with pains of labor
And portraits of heroes are venerated
By those who weathered the storm
It’s proved young Africans are leaves

Leaves that fall but go back not
Leaves that have on destiny- the soil
Season that emerges new leaves grow
But they too shade off and disappear
Like fog in the rising hot sun of the tropics
