Collaboration of the Gods!

Collaboration of the Gods!

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

They came together in the night and created prose! x

"

Selene

Sweet Goddess of the night we beseech thee,

Shine upon us in resplendent moonlight

Splendour beams from your glorious façade

To pierce our eyes and heart in harmony

 

Ictinike fooled the rabbit from his clothes

God of war, he taught the People to kill

Marrying the Chief’s daughter, he laughed

‘til the rabbit tricked him and broke the spider’s leg

 

Celebrated in victory

Vilified in slaughter

Lustful warrior deity

Aphrodite’s lover

 

Trunk of fire seeps metal to bind

A clever death never far from her grip

Weapons to score thousands and us one

Kali a dear friend and enemies poisoned tip.

"To pierce our eyes and heart in harmony"

Favorite line, by far. I'm imagining all the implications it could have--so many "what if?"s dance through my mind at the thought. A colorful write--descriptive, fantastic, strong. Well done, to all of you!

This poem has a touch of magical imagery. It's kind of like ancient mythology.

This is an interesting homage to the Gods of various religions. I'm not familiar with some of the references but the passages are each written well and describe in their own voices the Gods. Nice collaboration peeps.

I love how you infused the gods and goddesses as decorative motif, a one effective function of the myth in a poem. You put them all so well as allusions for all these gods and goddesses of this site.

A very pleasurable read I had.
