Praise Be
by Yusef Komunyakaa

When the trees were guilty, hugged up
to history & locked in a cross-brace

in the bloodred strawberry fields?

African Cinderella

She is as graceful as a swan .
Her beauty as rare as that of a peacock.
She quietly makes breakfast for her bitter father.

Through Highest Heavens
by Abasiama Udom

Sounds of babes will ring through highest heavens,
calling man and beast to lay trouble and pain aside.

He is that is and is to come,
Bow! Worship through highest heavens.

Blades are dancing- vibrant and gleeful.
Can you hear? Soothing babble of brooks.
Zion; for real, now we live!
From the skyline; adorned in aurorae,

in the southern chumey entrance
hello the swaying fagopyrum
in the eastern ura leasow
defy not the dance of yekos
in the northern tang Valley
treasure the life of arcadian
in the central Choekor valley
invoke the mighty lord
