I always love collected works because they let you see what subjects a poet returned to again and again through their lifetime. Maya Angelou‘s work is special because no matter what she‘s writing about her tone is tough as iron, but still fresh and hopeful. #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville

Soubhiville Agreed! 6mo

#AuthorAMonth2022 @Soubhiville

I was first introduced to Maya Angelou's poetry in high school but I've only read a few poems over the years.

This complete collection was amazing. Her versatility as an author is very evident in her poetry because she writes about a wide range of topics and her word choice and rhythm create a harmonious song full of truth, hope, and heart.

I'm so glad I picked this collection to read for this challenge. 💚

Soubhiville I‘m so glad you enjoyed it. 6mo

I had no idea that the famous Joni Mitchell song was inspired by this poem. I love finding connections like that!

#poetrymatters #taste
A ‘sensory‘ poem.

In this poem, Maya Angelou is not interested in the healthy, nutritional food offered by the diner. Instead she fancied some meat.

Recently, I've been mourning the loss of an amazing girl I used to know. It's been 8 years or so since I last saw her, and she was only 16 when she killed herself. Such a beautiful, musical, and rambunctious soul. My grief reminded me that working with kids gives me the chance to make a difference in someone's life. It also made me realize how much, even as an introvert, I crave connection with others. And now I'm back on Litsy. I missed you all.

Cathythoughts Beautiful post .... grief ♥️💔. I love this poem 3y
batsy ❤️❤️ (Lovely to see you back, btw.) 3y
mabell Glad you are back ❤️ I hope your family is doing well. We need to have another meetup soon! 3y

readinginthedark @Cathythoughts @batsy @Scorpioseah @MaureenMc @Jas16 @cobwebmoth @Bookzombie @mabell Thank you all so much! I saw these comments when you posted them but didn't answer, I'm sorry. I'm finally in a place where I can watch videos of her and listen to her sing without crying uncontrollably. The mommy hormones don't help. But I'm letting myself grieve slowly, and at least I can smile through my tears. I appreciate your support more than I can say. 3y
readinginthedark @mabell Agreed! What do you think of the last weekend of September? My schedule's a little crazy, but if that works for you, I'll post something about it for everyone. 3y
mabell @readinginthedark I‘m sorry it has taken so long for me to reply! I kept forgetting to check with Chris about that weekend. I think it should work. Fall gets busy for us - it seems like there is something every weekend! 3y
readinginthedark @mabell So sorry! I offered September and then haven't been on since. I don't know if you've discussed another meet-up time, but I'm thinking I could swing sometime in early March or late April or May, if we want to do a Spring meet-up! 3y
mabell Sounds good, and welcome back! 3y
readinginthedark @mabell Thanks! I'll get a few dates in mind and post something soon. If I get sidetracked and forget, just remind me! 3y

I have been traveling across time zones for the last week and even though I brought Maya with me, I‘ve had the hardest time reaching for a poem before my phone. BUT I‘m home now and in the love section of her collection just before Valentine‘s Day. This one is perfection 😍
