    Is she dead? It's really great that she's #1 on the 500 poets list.

    What an Angel you are, O Maya. Your poems constantly reminds me of my extraordinary relationship with Smt Hemangi S., my dearest wife of many lifetimes. Every woman is unique in herself. My wife is absolutely phenomenal - just like you, O Maya. I love you Hemangi, on this day, as I have loved never before.

    Even to her the best of her works seems are more they the ones in the list at around some over four hundred who could just as better suit up a higher position, so why the number one. Believed her works are of great possession of thoughtful and ideological qualities but her works lacks the best of the scents of dealing with prose.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,

The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman

Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my ...

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.
