    Blak woman
    have you ever just looked
    in the mirror and beheld yourself?


    Inviting curves
    ...beautiful soul ports...
    lips of fire
    ...hair roots planted in Africa
    nappy sienna essence

    Blak woman
    have you ever just sat
    silently and listened to yourself
    breathe?


    conversations of your adoration
    ...a civilizations thank yous
    for residence in your womb to birth
    falling rains that erodes pain from the earth
    so the sun can shine
    a brothers morning mantra
    "i love me a blak woman"

    every time a word is spoken
    it is because of you

    Blak woman have you ever just
    felt yourself move?
    understood
    why brothers dig
    your groove?

    an angelic pendulum...
    setting the tempo for lovemaking
    a sashaying set of hips
    where in between pyramids
    became
    arms and legs just
    "being their bad selves"
    moving
    getting you where and want to
    be...

    Blak woman have your ever
    noticed that your inherent rhythm
    permeates everything


    sets motion to the phases of the moon
    the changing of days /time/
    the birth of galaxies and shooting stars
    a universe on a dance floor creating
    itself to the beat of
    you

    Blak woman do you ever just sit
    and watch your presence
    "do it's thang"


    take the tongue from brothers
    dating some other
    snatching out their backbones
    forcing eyes to the ground
    just by walking by

    your presence makes
    everything else seem secondary
    it's that God given beauty that has
    made you every "other" women's envy.

    (c)2002 blakverb

    ***ya'll know every "other" woman wants to be like you. Lip injections, tans, butt jobs (JLo's *** ain't new, they just didn't want to give credit to sisters for a lovely backside), etc. Sisters you set the precedent for beauty...remember that, even in your darkest day.

    j'hiah and dnommo,

    Sisters need to hear how lovely and special they are. we need to support them and love them for being the beautiful queens that they are. Especially in this day and age of misguided brothers who don't understand this. Our presence is a gift from sisters by way of God. As men, we need to remember that.

    WOW!!!

    Was really my first
    reaction. Umm, by
    any chance were
    you referring to moi?
    Sorry, just wishful
    thinking. If I could
    verbalize, how much
    I love this piece of art,
    Webster, most likely,
    wouldn't have words
    like 'speechless', ya
    know what I mean???
    I love it...:heart:
