African Woman Poem by SylvaOnyema Uba

African Woman

Rating: 5.0


Black rock
Perfumed with
Soul of Africa
Carrying human truck
For nine seasons
Shield like
A snaily shell of fish
For little stars

Soft smiling sentinel
Pressed by
Water rolling infantile

Hospitality over blown balloon
Flying unabated
On hard rocks

You are
Harmony in the storm
Whistled like a fluvial ice

Jewel of the Lion
Lamb of the house
Moulding the colours of man
