This poem is from a deep soul and supporter of kati ya wanawake – a tribute to a sleeping sister:


Storming into our lives
At a tender age,
You weaved another God’s umbilicus
Among friends and strangers
Offering what was beyond us,
A first born to our first borns,
A sibling to the only child,
A sister, an auntie, a friend,
To those who know kinship beyond flesh and blood
Sealing the bond
With the quietest of smiles
The beauty of your soul
Invisible in the eternal depth
of Silence
that was the hallmark of your presence

It is well my baby girl
