This is written for the Halloween special – Write a Halloween sonnet.
Power of Three
Witches three meet in secret on the heath
meeting a man who doesn’t always know
his own mind to suspend his first belief.
A hero in mind; a hero too slow.
To remain loyal or to jump ahead.
whether it is right to veer from his path.
One prophecy, and power it is said
can break brittle bones of battle worn scars.
For Macbeth never a difficult choice.
His humility never is intact
History is losing a precious voice.
In one moment, prophecy a rare fact
It is Macbeth who wears the heavy burden
Nothing in his life ever be certain.
