PROPHETS AND GRIOTS AND THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE or WHERE IS AUTUMN?
the forests are
now leafed
in man made shower caps.
the colors of autumn are
distant memories
that prophets and griots and
the original people
tell glorious tales of.
when orange oranges
and
cherry reds
and
emerald greens
and
lemon yellows
hung like
jewelry leaves from the
earlobes of
tree branches
and
the wind
played
prayer dances
for the amusement of
Nature’s Mother.
when autumn was autumn
and winter
came in proud
and
bowed to spring
who seamlessly ushered in
summer.
such distant memories
that prophets
and
griots
and
the original people
tell glorious tales of.
(artwork from the glorious banquet of yolantha, the new Maya Angelou, seasoned with Gwendolyn Brooks, bathed in Langston Hughes, peppered with Angela Davis, sprinkled with Mother Teresa, lathered in William Shakespeare, rolled in Edgar Allen Poe, embellished with Anne Sexton, anointed by the blood of Jesus.)
