Thank you Jenni for posting that wonderful poem. I grew up in a neighborhood filled with women, and women to be, who embodied what Still I Rise projects. So many memories came back as I read it :)
There are two more days in the Angelou focus, though of course the more the better.
Starting next week I thought it would be fun if we all posted bits of poetry, or metaphors that appeal to us. They could be familiar, found, just thought up, funny, sad, peculiar; in other words no theme except that it is a bit or piece that catches your attention
" whisper your name in an empty room
brushed past my skin
as soft as fur"
