    Great poet Maya Angelou is no more. She has died at her home today. A great loss for literature.

    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.

The Detached

We die,
Welcoming Bluebeards to our darkening closets,
Stranglers to our outstretched necks,
Stranglers, who neither care nor
care to know that
DEATH IS INTERNAL.

We pray,
Savoring sweet the teethed lies,

[Hata Bildir]
