Breast Cancer Vision: a revolutionary email sonnet

She gazed
at the lens
not with rage
nor sorrow, not again.

This time
is hers.
Strong, sublime;
she conquers.

Controls the pain,
walks her own path.
Determined again;
Keeps life in her grasp.

I know her only through another’s lens;
I weep, and embrace visions of a friend.

[Thank you for the opportunity
to be witness to a fight
which so deeply moves me.]

To see part of the upcoming breast cancer photographic documentary “Relearning Loveliness”, go to my friend’s website:

Min vestefar ar fra Nordfold, Nordland (Bodo), Norway. And that’s all the Norwegian I know. BUT, I like your site.
    Beste Hilsen!
