a sisto circle be 
mama, queen and diva 
with Nia 
beautifully in sync.

they speak in soft native tongue 
sharing the secrets of earth and divine love 
that's revealed in children's eyes.

fingers interlock their radius
lightened by radiant smiles 
as incense give off herbal scents 
and colorful beads surround brown wrist 
calling on the spiritual realm.

the prayers be 
different sounds 
combining to a powerful beat 
to reach their people who turn up in need 
of they god?self.

the wealth be 
in discovering cultural passion 
and success in Black families 
that makes us all whole.

this whole be 
soul invokers, 
360 sistas embracing, loving and pulling 
the best out of them 
and us-
unfolding the stars, moon and sun.

they connect, 
and enchant-
this sista circle vibes with each other 
to make us
