Uncaged (for Maya)(and for me)

For Maya Angelou.  May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Against the odds
You made them into
Then rewrote
The rules again
Then rose
And rose again
Always singing
And now,
Whatever cage held you
(we all have cages)
Whatever cages held you
Those cage doors
Have been flung open
And you
You are completely free
To sing
To fly
To rise and rise again.

  1. Wow! Thank you, Catharine. A beautiful expression in a moment of grief and hope.
