Note below explains more about this Asclepius and his five daughters, this one being- Aceso (the goddess of the healing process).

Asclepius (/æs'kli?pi?s/; Greek: ?σκληπι?ς, Asklepiós [askl??piós]; Latin: Aesculapius) was a hero and god of medicine in ancient Greek religion and mythology. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts; his daughters are Hygieia ("Hygiene", the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness, and sanitation), Iaso (the goddess of recuperation from illness), Aceso (the goddess of the healing process), Aglæa/Ægle (the goddess of the glow of good health), and Panacea (the goddess of universal remedy). He was associated with the Roman/Etruscan god Vediovis and the Egyptian Imhotep.[1] He was one of Apollo's sons, sharing with Apollo the epithet Paean ("the Healer").[2] The rod of Asclepius, a snake-entwined staff, remains a symbol of medicine today. Those physicians and attendants who served this god were known as the Therapeutae of Asclepius.

The Goddess Of Blessed Redemption She gave me a foundation of love's pleasures complete with wondrous bountiful measures she a gentle goddess of golden hues, swept this heart away, vanquished all its blues. From a verdant forest spring she arrived relieving me of life sadly contrived. None other could love and give any more, she a goddess sent from paradise shore. When asked why she came to me to now bless no words came, my sins too sad to confess. Yet her Light and Grace healed this broken soul for this world had taken its heavy toll. Of Asclepius* blood, healing her art, body, soul and mind, first target the heart, faithful daughter, resplendent her warm glow sent to heal and allow this soul to grow. She freed my body from its scars and burns from ghosts of past buried in hidden urns, the mind confused by treachery and lies and the soul ready to face its demise. Her enchanted charm revived my delight to view the world in a generous light, for the mind to stand firm, no longer wilt, with redemption free the burden of guilt. Once a broken man, forsaken lost soul, I now stand stoutly with a heart that’s whole. With Apollo’s blood vibrant are my veins, by lease of life, released from morbid chains. Verve restored by Aceso’s healing might with radiance to end my sorry plight. Healed with love in atonement of past crimes with kindness I share life’s eternal chimes. Collaboration by Robert J. Lindley and Teppo Gren 7-05-2018 (1.) Asclepius*, see note above.. (2.) Aceso’s , ( Aceso (the goddess of the healing process ) (3.)Apollo- Greek Mythology - Apollo was one of the most versatile of the Greek gods. His domains extended from poetry and music, to light and truth, and archery. His mother was the Titan Leto, whose tryst with Zeus angered Hera. The Queen of the Gods tormented Leto, sending the monster Python to chase her across the whole world so she could find no safe space to bear her children. However, Leto found safe haven on the isle of Delos and gave birth to Artemis and then Apollo. ***** Note- With deep gratitude I present this collaboration written with my good friend Teppo Gren. A wonderful friend and truly amazing poet. A sonnet master that awes me with every poem he posts..

I believe redemption is much sought after especially as we age, when we take time to reflect on past regrets. This collaboration is beautifully written by two poets who express an open heart. A brilliant piece from you both. : )
