    Thanks for such intelligent thinking. Please allow and older sage and griot to post a few more tidbits of knowledge from a womans perspective.



    HAIKU #1
    Thinking our love was

    forever, I never thought

    to plan for myself



    HAIKU #2

    No comfortable

    place on earth for a thinking

    African woman



    HAIKU #3

    Her eyes held wisdom

    Of ancestors and triumph

    Of our children's smiles



    HAIKU #4

    So high, I grab stars

    Flinging them, they boomerang

    offering halos



    Not Natural

    now WE are dancing

    to the words instead of the

    music. GOD help us!



    Not Natural 2

    When we dance to the

    Words instead of the music

    We have become them



    Lock!

    My naps embrace, they

    Honor Creation, and are

    keys to pyramids



    Blues

    This space in my mind

    I wallow unconsciously

    my penance not paid



    JEWEL

    He used to wear me

    Like a diamond, but now

    He just wears me out

    To my people:

    Please bear with me as I write a few Haiku in another style, for you know that Haiku comes in variety of different genre.

    Past/Present?Future

    We come from a people
    who didn't know which way
    north was, didn't know
    if they would have shoes
    or
    food of comfort or housing
    ...or nurturing
    or support...but who said...
    I believe, we better than this
    and I will run on
    and see what the ends
    gonna be...Who had nothing..
    Nothing, and out of nothing,
    made a bridge to today,
    and out of nothing,
    made a bridge so that
    chillens and thier chillens
    chillens and my chillens
    chillens and our children
    and your children could walk
    across, which is the same
    thing that Dr Kng did for us,
