Inalegwu Omapada Alifa – A Blend of Blinding Beauty
A Blend of Blinding Beauty
This is a token of my love
in a lexicon nothing can unbind,
in a way beyond the skies above
for the beauty in black is all over my mind.
Black is a blend of blinding beauty,
moving with an African radiance of ebony ebullience,
walking in shuffling gentle gaiety
with her children across every ambience.
I’m seeing her tiptoeing,
adorned in her garland head-tie,
gingerly circulating her world with gracious grandeur,
with a sweet scent of beauty beyond a satire
and a calm voice full of humour.
I’m listening to the melody of a beautiful symphony
in the life of a black woman,
lovely beyond every rhythm and blues.
Her lyrical voice makes me vibrate in search of completion.
