    a day of Living Poetry for me was the sad day of Maya Angelou's passing. but to see her weeping and sobbing on msnbc was the Living part of it for me. Maya meant something personal and of deep meaning to Sonia, and she wept and sobbed until they went to their fracking commercial. it was very human and beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Sonia Sanchez writes like no other poet, and so it should be. Each poet draws from personal experience to write and emote their feelings. I am always inspired to think after reading her poetry about how these words relate to something I am feeling or have felt before. (Report) Reply
