Play on Words

Play on Words

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

Curious, capable

Complexity, simplicity alive

Serenity and chaos

Curves and perfume

Innocence, sin, dark, and light

She is momentary

Temporary

Forever-and-a-day

Spilling words on the page

She is free—

Creator, muse, force

Leaving marks of her own

Passionate, determined, complete.
