Condolence to the bereaved family of Maya Angelou. May her soul rest in peace and her works inspire other soul like me searching for the truth through the art of poetry. Great woman may your spirit be blessed and be with our creator.
I really can relate to maya shes a freedom speech to my life, to women lifes.To this day we should know her, this is her day of her pease in heven as she died and let her freedom ring to od, women, menthe world maya angelou is pease to our world she should be respected to this day
With Maya, it was love at first read….her blackness, her wits and her philosophy. While enjoying Maya’s work, I thought she existed in the past…. I never knew such a talent is ‘not’ of old…and still can’t believe that who wrote “I Know Why Caged Bird Sings” was still among us. I always wish to answer her poetic question in this natural way;
Yes, your sexiness upsets me,
It comes to me as a surprise
That you can dance like you’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of your thighs.
Adieu Maya Angelou…..you are a rainbow in our cloud…..and we now know why the caged bird sings….
She was a wonderful poet and a phenomenal woman. She will be in my prayers as will her family. She has left us a great deal to think about, a great deal to make each of us a better person. She will be greatly missed.
Wow.... Maya Angelo has gone to glory. There were two famous people I wanted to meet be for I left this world and she was one of them. Through her work and simply the way she carried her self made me feel I knew her. She always manage to be in ours head but some how she manage to touch our hearts as well. She will live on in my heart. A phenomenal woman was she!
I Lungelo S. Mbuyazi as an individual, admits that many poets or 'poets' (writers) writes including me if one will catagorise it that way. Poets they do not just wites but draw on a cartesian plane of what is in author's mind to our subconscious mind and lay down what they are trying to say to us and so we see it. Maya you are just that poet with a cartesian plane for the reader.
