    Since I became acquainted with Maya Angelou through her television appearances etc etc, I have admired her for her warm friendliness and obvious humour. Some women are natural beacons for other women. Maya has been one of those. May God rest her in peace. Amen. Mega Katonda Afirika, WIFE OF GOD.

    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.

    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.

    Still I rise - I can relate to this - gorgeous poem Maya

The Lesson

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Children.
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.
