Grannie, Woman of Africa

Sad words

Sad eyes

Sad, sad life

Why

Is there no anger

In your soft, smiling voice

Does your face glow

With a beauty as breathtaking

As that of the tree, vibrant with

That frothy purple

Magnificent blossom

Blooming alone

Among the dry, ungrateful

stones?

    Exquisite and compassionate portrait, Anita. The Zulu word for Grannie is Gogo. I don't know what it is in other languages indigenous to Africa.
