The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.
— Maya Angelou
You can go here to read about one of my favorite living poets … one who’s birthday just happens to be TODAY!!!
Born in 1928, Ms. Angelou is most known for her autobiographical books, most notably her brave and honest, I Know Where the Caged Bird Sings. She’s been nominated for the National Book Award, as well as, the Pulitzer.
Her poetry is stunningly lovely and startlingly honest. I wish her great health and longevity, because in my mind, she may well be the original Dancing Bird.
I don’t know what we’d do without her.
