LITTLE BLACK GIRLS

wondrous innocence

braids & ponytails double-dutching

twisting pavements       bouncing playgrounds

 

bright  shiny faces tease and  flirt

strutting sass      chanting names with

rhymes for beads & bowrettes

 

excited leaps to a joyous chorus

whips of fire      spree of majesty

jewels of wazuri  frolic

 

queens of  fancy-yet-crowned

      Thanks Diva. As a child, I was amazed by how effortlessly the girls performed Double-Dutch. Also I never saw boys doing it. Maybe we couldn’t. I know I couldn’t. Beauty, grace, balance and energy would serve them well as future queens.
