Why cover the same ground again? … It goes against my grain to repeat a tale told once, and told so clearly.
― Homer, The Odyssey
Welcome to this week’s Poetry 1o1 Rehab Prompt, which is also the last for 2015, but fear not, the Rehab will return next year – in fact next week 😉
My prompt this week is ODYSSEY. The Odyssey is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer. It is, in part, a sequel to the Iliad, the other work ascribed to Homer. An odyssey is also described variously as a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune and often as an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest. So, this week, put aside the seasonal eating and drinking for a moment, and write a poem to describe your own personal odyssey.
Winding roads, long, hard, lonely.
Fragments of, his story.
So it was,
on, and on, and on, and
cold, hope’s flickering light, beckoning.
At the end of the road, a reckoning.
The light flickered, and faded,
the road, winding ahead, a siren,
