Heather Rose

by mountainwriter49

Heather Rose
Tonight I think of Heather Rose as she
fights Dragon’s Breath and all that she’s been through
this year as heinous  beast has once again 
arisen from the ashes of prior surgeons’ knives.
          Resurgent cancer’s always one’s great angst
          as one moves from ground zero to the next
          step after the first battle’s won and hope’s
          restored, and faith gains ten-fold in one’s soul.
But Heather Rose does not submit to fear
of Dragon’s Breath that burns within her heart.
She rises up and fights like Superman,
retaining faith and promise for tomorrow’s sun.
          The darkest storm may shroud the morning light
 but ’tis resiellent rose that blooms despite the dark.

Our dear friend and FS colleague, Rose (Just2Write) has undergone serious cancer surgery this week. Her fans will be familiar with her recent post about her operation on Wednesday last. Rose has fought the dragon before, as have I and others. Thus, we share a kinship in this journey she is undertaking. I ask that my readers take a moment to offer up a prayer for Rose and a solid and sure recovery from this recent surgery.

Blank Verse Shakespearean Sonnet. This form follows the form of the Shakespearean sonnet except for the rhyme pattern. It has no end rhymes. Blank verse is usually write in iambic pentameter. With that said, I have taken liberty to have include a couple of lines that have 12 syllables; not ten. Such is poetic license! :)

THANK YOU for reading my poetry.
