maya

Dr. Maya Angelou, 1928 -2014

To our beautiful black sister, may we simply say, Ashe!
To your grace, to your elegance, to your charm, to your intellect, to your craftsmanship, to your ability to be a wordsmith: for your metaphors, for your prose, for your similes, for your rhymes and for your outstanding contribution, we at, Connecting the Dots say Ashe!

 

maya

in Hindu
maya
means illusion

maya
death is
an illusion

energy doesn’t dissipate
stars don’t die
they just cease being seen to
the naked eye

maya

in Hebrew (Habiru)
maya comes from
the water

maya
water
is life

every vibrato of your voice
quenches the thirst of young minds
rivers may dry up
but the rain returns in time

death is an illusion
stars never die
water is life
and the sky is never dry

before the body
there was the word
after the body
remains her words

maya.
rest.
