before resting on mine,

like summer road-trips

to places devoid of time,

places divine,

places where I am yours

and you are unambiguously mine.

Maya Angelou is resting in peace.
She lived a full life.
She loved,
And she shared that love.
It is we who need to live in peace
After her death reminds us that we haven’t yet earned our own.

There’s only one very good life and that’s the life that you know you want and you make it yourself.

Diana Vreeland

Sometimes your heart aches
for no reason.
But be kind to yourself
and say
it aches for reasons
you do not yet know.
