Tradition: dresses in red.

Tamara Caridad Mesa González 4 diciembre, 2018

December 4th: dress

of red followers

of Changó; candles and flowers

on the altars. Persist

the African heritage, insists

the spiritual tradition,

and in transculturation

of gods reach out

Cuban culture

with a religious face


Santa Bárbara or Changó,

names with strength in their essence,

idols whose presence

in a daily voice

it’s just devotion; the

that inspire is memory

and it is a legacy.

On the wheel

of time, every deity,

It is symbol, identity,

component of the story.
