The Postage Stamp

Ripple Poetry

How could you have known that one day
you’d be immortalized on a stamp
that proclaims you
forever poet
forever remembered.

Bounced between homes
living in spaces
with people breaking
their wings snapping
their realities clashing
and disintegration of
insight surrounding.

Outwardly low physical vision
thick spectacles to assist
but sports will be difficult
yet inwardly sharp global vision
emerging and blossoming
from the heart of poems.

Peeling back their layers
they are explorations and journeys
much more than African America
yet firmly giving voice to this voiceless.

You speak to me across forever
and I have much to learn of
this same art and faith
we both hold dear.
