Zen Pencils is a great cartoonist who turns strong words into even stronger images. I love how he makes poems come to life. Such as Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou.
Angelou recently passed away and Gavin of Zen Pencils dedicated this cartoon to her. I think it’s a very strong and gracious poem on the strength of women. With my love for spoken word poetry, I like to read poems out aloud, and this one very good for that. So try it.
First the wonderful cartoon by Zen Pencils, then the full text of the poem (under read more). If you like Maya Angelou, also watch the video by Natalie Patterson with A Tribute To Maya Angelou, al the way down this post.
