The Titan muse #photochallenge


Under dark skies and Luna’s gaze

I pause, reflecting on my fate

for traitorous act condemned, to hold

the world of man upon my shoulders

I burn each day in Helios’ fire

to suffer Khione’s ire by night,

when men no longer think of us

power is lost for such as Zeus

  1. Ah. I almost missed this fabulous poem, Bob. I’m assuming it’s in response to the speculative fiction challenge (?). If so, please leave a link in the comments on the original prompt post so I can reblog. No need to do that now since I found it, but perhaps in February? Thanks so much 🙂
