V. Odysseus

Poseidon hardly even knows me.

An idle king in heart
reigns with a swift lead open hand.

Life’s lees are far too bitter,
far too deep,
and the wine is corked.



VI. Atlas

The sky may fall;
the stellar sphere may crash with all its weight
and music;

god(s) may smite;
the clouds may freeze and bury me;
the sun may swallow me whole;

leaves may drop and leave me bare;
the mist may soak my skin;

I raise my arms only to catch
that snowflake that dares drift upward.

Odysseus....
I know I read the Odyssey back in freshman yr.

I don't even remember what it was about.
I was more into Romeo & Juliet, LOL.

'Tis the season!
Snow is really pretty.

Until cars start driving on it, making it all slushy and bleck.
