he came to me like
a thousand feathered kisses on my lashes
and i let him light upon me
gently

i told him i couldn't stand
for too much more

miracle worker that he is
he gave me so much more

made me rock and reel
like a sinewy palm waving
in his windstorm

i told him i seriously couldn't stand
for any more, for sure

he smiled at me,
with eyes that illuminated
my whole being

i promised him, i really, really
couldn't stand for
this - not another minute!

without a word
he held his arms outstretched
and opened all his love to me

my knees gave way

Dear Sister Poet Alyce,

Lovely. I hope you take what I am about to type as a compliment because it is meant to be one. There are few poems that I read that I say to myself I wish I had written that, this my friend, is one such poem. I felt this everywhere within that could feel. Breath-taking.

(smile)

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
