Poem for Anne Turning 70
Her vocalized peace and freedom disclosures
keep floating above the rooftops of the world
whether she is chanting for egalitarian change
like a fast-speaking woman of the here and now
or reading Iovis epics from the inventive future.
She made a sacred vow to poetry and kept it
in an era when too many public figures
break promises without half-blinking an eye.
She has traveled the globe as an acknowledged ambassador
for Imaginative Leaps and all sentient beings.
May she be rewarded with good health
and the health of the planet.
