The Most Beautiful Woman On Earth / Poem by Santiago Ali

Poem by Santiago Ali

 

The Most Beautiful Woman On Earth 

Out of love
God at times comes down to his people
to knock at most kind a heart
that cries on neighboring children sleeping….hungry

It was an Immaculate Conception
when God made of her
The Vessel of His love
Inundated and overwhelmed in the beauty of bones
she exhaled all her life in the red of blood

And man confused
himself in lethal betrayals
of a lustful labyrinth heavily mined
and he –
aghast and shell shocked watch tiny footprints of his children nearing him from every direction

Out of love
she pours down from the mouth of her vessel an ambrosial utterance
while knocking at her heart are tiny hands of her
famine trampled children who wore only black skin
their piercing diamonds of eyes drowned in a pool of red
still the colour of the blood
in tears she makes her child inhale
the glory of the milky way….
