Mercury   7 comments

Written for Chimera 66 Writing Challenge.


I was born in a cave

Father said I was his messenger

Winged hat and shoes were my favorite fashion

Squirmed free and ran to Thessaly

Brother love is what I craved

But robbed my brother instead

Brother protested my new-found herd

Zeus and Maia argued about that they did

Mother said it could not be

Father disagreed

Time for me to play my lyre

  1. Those gods were something else, weren’t they? I really like your opening line and the way it sets the tone for the rest of the piece. Nicely done – and nice to see you! 🙂
