Queen of wisdom and real love

She was and is Queen of wise words, spoken so truthful and vibrant! Oh how the wail in my heart, sings in jubilation of her life! Maya Angelou as, so many have said she was 'Angelic'. Her compassion to share 'REAL LOVE WISDOM'.
I craved to be her student, but I was too late, I am so happy that we still have her teachings with us though.
Her life as an African American Woman.Her struggles as, we all have are understood by many, experienced by many.A dancer, A civil rights activist, An author, A poet.
I had just started a work of fantasy poems based on her adventures in her vastly loved life.It was of how Woman came from another Galaxy to help man flourish the earth, By reproducing Himself.I just started the work I wish I could have done it and done it well a lot sooner.
Her writings have so much truth about real love not 'mushy gushy' love, but, ' real truth I'm not holding back so you take it love '!
I am reading her life so, much lately, I can't believe this Phenom is gone.
but, I still am writing and learning more about her and other great poets.
I hope to learn from her messages and teachings the way to bring forth, messages as enlightened as, hers. I hope for her to rest in peace, and Thank You!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
