Small raw excerpt from “Isle of Sankos.” This poem will be a part of a larger cycle of narrative poems in the Dapania series.
The isle of Sankos knows no living man,
only those who perished on its golden
beaches after Dapania sang them
her song of longing, of passion, of a
desperate love she desired but lacked.
I’ve always been interested in Greek mythology. It is no surprise that I spent a month writing a series of poems on the Medusa myth. I really enjoyed it. Athena was my star, with Poseidon playing a smaller, but significant role.
Prompt #4: The Greek gods/goddesses
Write a poem or story based on a Greek god/goddess that intrigues you. Feel free to venture beyond Zeus and Poseidon. There are tons of them out there. Experiment and see what you come up with.
