DAUGHTER OF THE WATER, WOMAN OF THE LEOPARD
Published online in Garden Spices Magazine
"They say stars fell on Alabama, what a beautiful night that must have been.
Afrika fell on Alabama, with words of a thunderous storm of heritage lost.
A daughter of the water flowed over our lives, powerful as a Blood Moon.
A woman of the leopard spoke with the voices of her Afrikan brothers and sisters, murdered by the privileged.
Her ancestors called to her of wandering spirits, waiting to be named.
Tears cascaded down her face, like the mighty waters of her birth.
A daughter of the water, a woman of the leopard shared her words of truth.
Vangile Gantsho fell on Alabama, what a beautiful night it was."
