Uncaged (for Maya)

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song.
-Maya Angelou

 


If you feel like singing,
don’t let anyone
ask why.

Love, when you find your song,
just let it
….

The astounding Dr. Maya Angelou went to heaven yesterday.
The world of poetry – and humanity itself – will miss her dearly.

    such warmth, intelligence and soaring in your words.
    I loved this and will miss Dr. Angelou very much. The world feels chilly without her right now. I am glad for the warmth of her words and yours.

    I love this. I think Maya would too. It carries her spirit.

  3. Anne Sexton says:

    Agreed. There will always be someone somewhere to hate everything we ever do. We must learn not to care.

    I like the way you use “Love” as both a verb and a term of endearment.

  4. What a great and apt tribute. I like that “fly” is backwards and diagonal…. we should all fly in our own direction, sing our own songs.

Use your words.
