The first full week in March is National Words Matter Weeks, sponsored by the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors. http://www.wordsmatterweek.com
One of the prompts for the week is: “Writers craft words into memorable phrases, stories, poems
and plays. What writers make your heart sing? Why?”
I want to praise Maya Angelou for her words. I never knew poems could be so powerful. I feel her childhood pain in every word and celebrate the serenity she displays as she writes about her life today. And to amplify the power of her poems, listen to her read them. Wow!
