You Inspired Me "Maya Angelou"


Blog Posted:5/28/2014 1:45:00 PM

From the moment I first heard your voice, you had my attention.  Your words inspired me, and I became curious of who you were.  Your words were different and yet I understood.  To express myself in words became my mission in life, because of Maya Angelou. You are gone now, but your words, your life, your legacy will live forever.  I fell blessed to have known such a "Phenomenal Women".   These are my words to you..........



“Rest”

It is as if the world stood still

A moment froze in time

No sound of water rippling through a stream

For peace possess my mind

I lay alone, my time to rest

A cloud beneath my head

My thoughts my dreams

Of pleasant things

My life is at its best

It is as if the world stood still

Of a time only I could know

As I have laid in a bed of peace

Like sand upon the shore

Escape the scorns of worldly test

My eyes are gently closed

As the scent of roses fills the air

My worries are no more………..I Rest!

By Patricia Mitchell-Templeton

    Thank you guys for your comments, I meet her once in Houston, TX at the Brilliant Lectures . She was there to recite her poems. I paid the extra to at reception for her, she was by far the most amazing person I had ever met. She was real and gave such an encouragement message. I really wish I could have spent more time with her, but just being in her presence for that time is priceless. l

    A lovely tribute to a poet who went through so much in her life-'As I have laid in a bed of peace...My worries are no more---I rest" . A very apt tribute for Maya, Patricia.

    Patricia, this is really a lovely poem. While reading it silently, in my head, I heard Maya reading it aloud. Did you really know her? A lovely woman, she will be missed. hugs, Catie :)
