AS BRIGHT AS THE MORNING RISING

A Poem by Michelle Asentewa


As Bright as the Morning Rising



Michelle Yaa Asantewa is a Writer who teaches Creative Writing at London Metropolitan University. Her research and writing interests are African derived spiritual practices and traditions. Her Blog WayWiveWordz fuses Pan-Africanism, the pursuit of spiritual fulfilment and artistic expression.


I asked Michelle to write this piece after coming across her Blog where she used one of my images ”As Bright as the Morning Rising” as an illustration.  Yaa was also motivated in the writing of this piece by the return to the UK, of a matriarch from the Caribbean.
