Aung San Suu Kyi

Her
Nelson
Mandela
tenacity
has final reward
with elated cries of
glee in newly elected
democracy. This much honored
lady of Burma birth is free at
last to share her worth in her peaceful mirth.

    I like this rhythm very much, just flying down the slopes of the Table mountain like an eagle from the top and settlling fiercely on a branch in the wide plains...Wow, democracy! Thanks for sharing, Connie. Love, Hanitra

    The lady is Aung San Suu Kyi. Less than two years ago, Myanmar's leaders were doing all they could to silence pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Now they're poised to welcome her into parliament. My eye is doing much better now Lizzie, thank you for asking. Hugs, Connie
