warm ~ a kwansaba

Warm wafts of mother's cooking drifts in
my heart in wonder melts at once
singing to the beat of my home
dressed up for the day in freesia
to welcome luck and our little cousins
for our pasts and futures to open
that beloved box of stories yet untold






Eugi’s weekly prompt – untold; dVerse’s Grace asks us to write a kwansaba, a South African poetry form of 7 lines. On blessings.

  1. May the joy of the season fill your heart here at the closing if the year 2021, and may peace abide in 2022. This is a most difficult time for our planet earth, and a time of turmoil for its peoples. May 2022 begin the way back! ✌🏼❀️🌎
