We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness

    thank you- a fulfilling perspective on love
    Love does arrive
    on a myriad gilded horses
    sets to shame our daily grosses
    enlivened with melancholy and it's farces (Report) Reply

    If you have a chance please read my RAINBOW IN MOTION HAIKU..It is my favorite poem of the ones I've written and I believe it has a universal theme: The Rainbow. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Elsewhere I have seen folks perplexed by the apparent absence of angels in Maya's poem. For those who don't know, let me explain:

    Angels are not mentioned or even implied in this beautiful poem... everything this Great Master writes seems to radiate this beauty.

    It was written specially for the American TV series TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL... perhaps the greatest TV series ever made... to fit in with the plotline of an episode called 'Reunion'.

    It is included on the recent DVD issue (Region 1) of the Complete Second Season as well as the Time/Life release.

    Highly recommended to see Dr Angelou's strong performance as an actress but, of course, especially to hear her read her own words in that wonderful voice! (Report) Reply
