Across the skies
day upon day
I drive my steeds
that all may know
the light cast by
one so radiant
Day Twenty-One of 2016 NaPoWriMo.
The prompt from napowrimo.net: “today I challenge you to write a poem in the voice of a minor character from a fairy tale or myth. Instead of writing from the point of view of Cinderella, write from the point of view of the mouse who got turned into a coachman. Instead of writing from the point of view of Orpheus or Eurydice, write from the point of view of one of the shades in Hades who watched Eurydice leave and then come back. Happy writing!”
According to Greek mythology, the phoenix bathed in the water of a well, and the Greek sun-god Helios stopped his chariot (the sun) in order to listen to its song.
