on the day Maya Angelou died

on the day Maya Angelou died,
a torrential downpour
parted the sky &
cleansed the ground below
with Mother Nature’s tears.
no tribute could do justice
to the phenomenal woman who faced
intolerance with understanding
& adversity with calm resolve.

    • Thanks so much, Miranda! πŸ™‚ Maya Angelou’s work was one of my formative influences. Learning more about her life continues to prove how she was truly a phenomenal woman like her poem said.
