pink blossom (haiku by Roberta Beary)



“My haiku inspiration is the sturdy beauty of the cherry blossoms here in Washington, DC. and the way the pink blossoms remind me of my own bionic breasts. I have various Titanium markers embedded in me, placed during breast cancer biopsies. Because Titanium is a biocompatible metal I think of my breasts as having bionic parts. Even with my family’s breast cancer history, I am not afraid to be tested again. I think it is because the bionic parts of my breasts make me feel a bit like Wonder Woman. I can feel my bionic powers. They are as strong as the sturdy pink blossom which blooms here every April. “
