I'm so saddened today about the passing of our premier poet, Maya Angelou. She was an extraordinary poet and an extraordinary woman.
As a poet myself, I recognize her literary talent and achievements as truly special. She was definitely gifted as shown by her autobiographical books and her collections of poetry. She truly rose from her troubled childhood to be a foremost practitioner of her craft.
She enriched us all and we are also poorer for her loss.
Rest in Peace, Ms. Angelou and keep your expressive spirit active somewhere in the greater cosmos.
