Ode to Maya Angelou

12 Comments

I am saddened to hear the death of an amazing woman, poet, celebrator of life and living, Maya Angelou. Last week I had just posted a poem I wrote in her honor on her Facebook. She has done so much for us…But a woman like that lives on in each of us…Nemaste my friend.

Ode to Maya Angelou
Maya –
Transformer
Spiritual reality
Messenger of the Gods
So ideally named
Your tragedy evolved strength
You, oh mother of words,
Who transforms women from frailty to power
With spiritual messages from the Gods,
You are love, you are light, you are a living message
To women of the world.
You are acceptance.
You are peace.
