blind sister dread
blind sister horror, sleep
and I … alarm sister
shall watch for him
while sea-foam hiss
your senses charm
there … there … dreaming
now, sight be my turning
against his thievery … he
mighty gods empowered … he
who would steal my vision
to catch the flash of moonlight
upon his mirrored shield
and I would not open to him
access to sequestered power
of sister serpent hair
for she will petrify him
to behold the potent
in her image

wow – I like that one. Nicely done.
Grateful thanks, Andrew. Smiles …
Kind of scary in a poetic, magical way!
You and I are enjoying the edginess in myths, Nancy. Smiles …
scans in a very classic form – dramatic and very strong – hope you are well and writing Bonnie.
for some reason ‘Like’ buttons don’t work for me anymore but I can still comment.
Grateful for your comment, John. This eighty year old brain is still sparking enough for another, though brief, book of poetry. I’m aiming for the spring. And, I learn from your creative spirit.
as i learn from yours
good luck with the book
Thank you for all your visits to Art Rat Cafe Bonnie…
Well…finally “hello,” John. I’ve been unable to write for some time now. I miss keeping up the site. Fingers crossed…I am rather superstitious…I shall pick it up again. Smiles…
