AN EBON SONNET TO MANY RIVERS CROSSED

CATEGORY

(Black History Month in VA, 2024*)

 

Went down to the James River

And touched the deep still waters;

From the diaspora of the ripples

I heard screaming echoes of ancestors:-

I felt their spirits riding riverbank breezes;

Our souls mingled like the water and the earth.

Indeed, we are the people of the holy mud:

Ebony clods scooped and spat into creation.

Over many rivers and seas we have spread;

Now we stand; sable souls searching shores:-

Anchored deep—our undying spirit—in stilled waters,

Continue to fuel ebony souls that have known many rivers:-
