This month, I’m honoring National Poetry Month by making art from two of my favorite poems. The first one is Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman.” I love the rhythm, voice, and take-no-prisoners attitude of this poem. In it, Maya Angelou owns her womanhood absolutely and unapologetically. Every time I read it, I feel the thrill of recognition and the yearning to be more and bigger and better.
I’ll do the other poem on my next post, April 24th. If you’re doing anything to celebrate National Poetry Month, let me know in the comments section. I want to come celebrate with you!
Happy weekend, you guys.
