    What a screaming silence,
    And the echoes of its ambience,
    Claiming the space with cold air,
    O, I see, a virtue has gone out here,
    No more we hear, no more we hear,
    The unchanged rhythm of your drum,
    Which wailed out for freedom,
    By the hit of your poetic ruthe,
    For the caged passenger pigeon has flown,
    And a roaring silence sweeps my heart's lawn.

    you the phenomenally phenomenal woman
    here I bid adieu
    never I forget you
    a respected salute I offer you
    may your soul rest in peace - MAYA ANGELOU

    Rest Well Among the Angels
    (A tribute Poem to Maya Angelou)

    Insight to her world
    And all that words can be
    Most gracious woman
    Phenomenally.

    The power of your presence
    Your eloquence and your rhyme
    Now you lay your head to rest
    And forever you will rise!

    The lyric, the love
    The lessons that were learned
    The colors of your rainbow
    The beauty in what we’ve heard.

    Those things a person must come to know
    So few yet understand
    Love was your compass
    Your comfort
    And the power behind your pen.

    Your legacy
    Your gift
    What you put out in this world
    Measured by
    Treasured by
    Your courage and your words.

    You’ve paved many roads
    A legend the world did see
    Rest well among the angels
    Forever…
    Phenomenally.

    The bird so rare when caged that sang
    is fully free at last but cannot sing anymore!
    May her soul R.I.P. in the Lord's embrace!

    The Exit Of Maya Angelou

    What a screaming silence,
    And the echoes of its ambience,
    Claiming the space with cold air,
    O, I see, a virtue has gone out here,
    No more we hear, no more we hear,
    The unchanged rhythm of your drum,
    Which wailed out for freedom,
    By the hit of your poetic ruthe,
    For the caged passenger pigeon has flown,
    And a roaring silence sweeps my heart's lawn.

    The free bird aloof invincible space,
    Is now hosted by long gone face,
    Of the solitaire, the great auk,
    The garefowl, the labrator duck,
    The kona grosbeak, The carolina parakeets,
    And your name maya the warblers sing,
    But here we are a vacuum,
    Filled by the absence of Maya Angelou,
    Though the blood of your pen,
    Has been sucked by the reaper of men,
    But our heart is consoled by your age and prints,
    O mighty maya may you rest in peace,
    Because the cage bird alas is free.

    Dedicated to late Maya Angelou.

    Such an inspiration to many. Madam Angelou, you will forever be missed. May your inspiring words of courage, peace, joy, and laughter live on forever. May many find your life as a stepping stone to go beyond all that hinders. RIP.....

    When the caged canary sings
    The song of freedom and love
    And flies on imaginary wings
    We will remember you Angelou........

    RIP..... a life well lived to inspire others.......

Touched by an Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
