Hail To The Black Woman_Part II


Another poem from thirty years ago.

 

proof

 

searched for proof of God.

 

studied,

listened,

thought.

 

Still,

 

searched for proof of God.

 

’til,

I saw

the

rapture.

 

Her beauty … awesome

it made my eyes follow her …

 

Full ripe lips,

doe-brown eyes

as she approached

 

cherry-round ass.

 as she strolled past.

 

 

…a dark chocolate delight

 

no other way to explain it

 

…there is a God!!!

Hail To The Black Woman_Part I


I wrote several poems honoring dark complexioned African-American women more than thirty years ago [I used to write poetry long before I began writing essays and screenplays].

Beauty In Black

you stood
in a shower of moon beams

undressed
like an orchid unfolding

AND BEHOLD

A MASTERPIECE!

as if
handmade
not born

your nakedness
deep double black

starlight
swirling round
your soft dark curves


full lips
kissy fresh

bright eyes
baby brown

round ass
apple ripe


that night
I have memorized you

the definition
of beauty

and knew from that night on

that beauty
looks best
in black
