I remember one time wen
we was walkin down tha stream
to collect some water for cookin’
I could feel her cool vibe from
how she walk
how she moved her feet
you’d think she was listenin to a beat
I could chat with her as she put water in
tha calabash
she would fill it up with no break in the
rhythm of her hand

She was real smooth in how she moved
calabash on her head
cassava on both hands & she would
move as if the wind was her kin…

I would walk ba her side
wen I got too close she wud move
to tha left or to tha right
felt like a salsa slide…

They said she was a drummers daughter
born out of the rhythms of the ‘toom toom’
I could feel it whenever we walked to the
stream or to school
she must have been given to Ingoma at birth
cause being with her always felt like you
were in a spiritual dance….

    You really can see it in some people, I agree, I liked the cadence in this and how it took me to a place I’ve not been before as I saw through your eyes.
