Love is an odyssey and maybe those times were the golden age of romance or maybe that is a myth too. Anyway many got fleeced.

I go for myth...but some of them were quite fun to believe in.
thank you, andrew,

So says Homer. Thematic poetry is good. If this is 99 I must have missed a few.

Ah, the adventures of long ago. Romance is something rarely forgotten. Never thought of my romantic encounters as an odyssey, but it is appropriate! Lydi**

dear friend
Such a creative piece of poetry, J. I'm a bit envious of that Odyssey. Mine has been a comedy of errors, unfortunately. A great write and senryu.

Had my share of black comedy as well...
thank you, Carlos,

I read both of Homer's books at an early age. I've always loved classical literature. The war is over we assume the trip home, finished. Here's hoping your adventures bring you wonderful memories, a hero's welcome and legends left in conquered hearts.

Your reply is much better than the poem itself, Fabian...
oh, there were some adventures...no.. read more
And long may you remember your adventures in love. Well, at least the good bits J. You hit me thinking about my own adventures. Not many to count there :)

Beautiful! You are most fortunate to have experienced "adventures in love." At my age, I can scarcely remember. LOL ~Sharon
