Maya Angelou

Robbing me of solitude

Maya accompanies me

tonight

High on hopes

smoking our thoughts

we weave an ideal world

Shed everything borrowed

she tells me,

welcome authenticity

anew your being.

Dear Rakshinda,
What a poet you are! I love your image, Maya Angelou robbing you of your solitude. Such inspiration, inspired by her company to weave an ideal world.

Hello, Rakshinda,

What a coincidence! I was listening to a video where Maya recited her Phenomenal Woman earlier! I love her, too!
