Maya Angelou

So I wanted to say goodbye to the amazing Maya Angelou. She enriched the world with her brilliance and her humanity.

This spectacular lady did it all. Even won a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

I think she spoke not just of pride of oneself but what it was to be human. Truly human, and humane, which should go along with being human.

She always seemed fearless to me, and I loved that she could combine that fearlessness with such a beautiful and hopeful outlook on the world. Even at its darkest, Maya never stopped believing in the light.

I am not like that (I do know how to laugh at myself, though.) But I am not always hopeful. I wish I could be, and I am trying hard. Maya is one to look up to and emulate in this regard. (And those lines rhyme intentionally, yes.)

So goodbye, Maya Angelou, and thank you for the inspiration. Now I’m done ‘cos I want everyone to go read some of her words. Go!

fuiku haiku

i vowed i would not

resort to this sad method

but daily posts are hard;

so do i cheat, well

you may call me tricky, but

at least its a double

(A double haiku that is. Does a double haiku have a special name, like twoku? Haitwo? Duoku? Count Dooku? Niku? <ni is Japanese for two> {holy shit, parentheses within parentheses})

*sigh* I’ll do better tomorrow.
