This piece was inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem, “Phenomenal Woman.” I read her poem after feeling a bit depleted recently, and it really lifted my spirits. Maya’s poetry, like almost everything she wrote, gives me strength.
She is heat, skin, and breath
Complexity, simplicity alive
Serenity and chaos
Curves and perfume
Innocence, sin, dark, and light
She is momentary
Spilling words on the page
She is free—
Creator, muse, force
Leaving marks of her own
Passionate, determined, complete.
