|Wonderful,uplifting sonnet that speaks to my heart!
Thanks for sharing, and I love the close adherence to His Honor's(Shakespeare's) rhyme scheme and meter.

A lighthouse to the wounded who seek shore.
You go girl, and you tell them where it is at. We may be the play things that men have conjured up in their minds, but we are not going to play their silly childish games. We are human beings and we deserve respect. This poem hits the heartstrings of every woman and has a message for us to fight back the insane tyranny with which the man tugs at our soul. Good work sis, and if I had to rate this I would give ***** golden stars for form, content, imagery, and message.
Love and Hugs,
PS: I am not at my computer. I am not even home because I am in the hospital in Traverse City, Michigan waiting to have another stent put in my heart tomorrow morning. I also have very bad renal failure and episodes of vertigo.
Take care sis, :-)

|I like this three-fold sonnet, Nordette. I especially love how the turn with the image of the "starry eyes" accords with the flashing beacon of the lighthouse in the last. And, as always, this work shines! Beautiful rhythm and flow that speaks of a hard-won peace, a grace. Oozes depth and heartfeltedness. xx|

|This is the precise result of writing poetry for many years and perfecting the craft. Nordette Adams, your beacon shines bright. I am honored to call you a friend, and if I may, I will visit the lighthouse to the wounded who seek shore when I am in need...a good salve for healing a broken heart...
