    *Prometheus

    Prometheus
    GREEK GOD
    WRITTEN BY: The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica
    See Article History
    Prometheus, in Greek religion, one of the Titans, the supreme trickster, and a god of fire. His intellectual side was emphasized by the apparent meaning of his name, Forethinker. In common belief he developed into a master craftsman, and in this connection he was associated with fire and the creation of mortals.



    * Poseidon

    Poseidon (puh-SYE-dun or poh-SYE-dun)
    Roman name Neptune. See The Olympians for another picture.
    Poseidon was the god of the sea, earthquakes and horses. Although he was officially one of the supreme gods of Mount Olympus, he spent most of his time in his watery domain. Poseidon was brother to Zeus and Hades. These three gods divided up creation. Zeus became ruler of the sky, Hades got dominion of the Underworld and Poseidon was given all water, both fresh and salt.

    Although there were various rivers personified as gods, these would have been technically under Poseidon's sway. Similarly, Nereus, the Old Man of the Sea, wasn't really considered on a par with Poseidon, who was known to drive his chariot through the waves in unquestioned dominance. Poseidon had married Nereus's daughter, the sea-nymph Amphitrite.

    The Romans' name for Poseidon was Neptune.

    In dividing heaven, the watery realm and the subterranean land of the dead, the Olympians agreed that the earth itself would be ruled jointly, with Zeus as king. This led to a number of territorial disputes among the gods. Poseidon vied with Athena to be patron deity of Athens. The god demonstrated his power and benevolence by striking the Acropolis with his three-pronged spear, which caused a spring of salt water to emerge. Athena, however, planted an olive tree, which was seen as a more useful favor. Her paramount importance to the Athenians is seen in her magnificent temple, the Parthenon, which still crowns the Acropolis. The people of Athens were careful, all the same, to honor Poseidon as well.

    Poseidon was father of the hero Theseus, although the mortal Aegeus also claimed this distinction. Theseus was happy to have two fathers, enjoying the lineage of each when it suited him. Thus he became king of Athens by virtue of being Aegeus's son, but availed himself of Poseidon's parentage in facing a challenge handed him by King Minos of Crete. This monarch threw his signet ring into the depths of the sea and dared Theseus to retrieve it. The hero dove beneath the waves and not only found the ring but was given a crown by Poseidon's wife, Amphitrite.

    Poseidon was not so well-disposed toward another famous hero. Because Odysseus blinded the Cyclops Polyphemus, who was Poseidon's son, the god not only delayed the hero's homeward return from the Trojan War but caused him to face enormous perils.

    Poseidon similarly cursed the wife of King Minos. Minos had proved his divine right to rule Crete by calling on Poseidon to send a bull from the sea, which the king promised to sacrifice. Poseidon sent the bull, but Minos liked it too much to sacrifice it. So Poseidon asked Aphrodite, the goddess of love, to make Minos's queen, Pasiphae, fall in love with the bull. The result was the monstrous Minotaur, half-man, half-bull.

    As god of horses, Poseidon often adopted the shape of a steed. It is not certain that he was in this form when he wooed Medusa. But when Perseus later killed the Gorgon, the winged horse Pegasus sprang from her severed neck.

    Poseidon sometimes granted the shape-shifting power to others. And he ceded to the request of the maiden Caenis that she be transformed into the invulnerable, male warrior Caeneus.

    To Leave Melancholy Waters Behind

    Resolutely her heart pounded its glee
    she a mere mermaid of romantic seas
    in heart of hearts mortal wanting to be
    upon solid ground from waters thus free
    A princess and to earthen realm thus wed
    with that precious dream always in her head.

    To leave melancholy waters behind
    stroll into humanity, true love find
    walking new steps and feel sun's waking glows
    feel the beach sands between her newfound toes.
    Touch pendulous branches of willow trees
    rise to wander the new world as she please.

    Admiring land's beauty, Nature's soft views
    watch as sun colored skies bluest hues
    dance as life and loving were both there found
    live as dream by *Prometheus unbound
    Wear the flowers of Spring's fragrant romance
    searching for her prince not waiting for chance!

    Under night skies, slow wafting tidal waves
    praying mercy's breath that lonely heart saves
    she reaching up to touch that dream aloft
    to receive gift of kisses warn and soft
    *Poseidon her sincerest prayers had heard
    changing her to mortal with single word!

    Resolutely her heart pounded its glee
    she a mere mermaid of romantic seas
    in heart of hearts mortal wanting to be
    upon solid ground from waters thus free
    A princess and to earthen realm thus wed
    with that precious dream always in her head.

    I That Once In Youth Thought To Be A God

    I that once in youth thought to be a god
    trampled many on darker path I trod
    until that path's fruits tore me asunder
    cast away all my forbidden plunder.
    In despair, I again sought the true right
    Soul's repair, treasure given divine Light.

    I that once so begged, new morns to eat
    delicious moments to sweet delights meet
    day's path with love and its romantic winds
    slave to passion and all that it portends
    In haste, rush that mysterious unknown
    thereby wrecking all, birthing heart of stone.

    I that once sought all greed and lusts demand
    blinded warrior in a devouring land
    ignoring pains, poisons and gushing bloods
    ever seeking more and more- treasure floods.
    In disarray, lost as a dying rat
    for on indifference I had grown fat!

    I that once found treasure so deep and true
    such beauty as never again I knew
    a gem beyond most mortal's blinded sight
    blessing which made lonely heart and soul bright.
    In fear, I placed her in cold iron chains
    until all that was left was sad remains.

    I that once in youth thought to be a god
    trampled many on darker path I trod
    until that path's fruits tore me asunder
    cast away all my forbidden plunder.
    In despair, I again sought the true right
    Soul's repair, treasure given divine Light.

    Once Cast Into Stormy Winds, Words Decrying Fate

    I bid adieu, life and hidden glory not found
    in defiance I speak from this high lofty height
    once slaving in destructive blindness, firmly bound
    to mortal arrogance, rage born in dark of night
    Final words, I utter before I make this leap
    you that slayed me, your false victory may keep!

    As Years And Life Thus Ever Onward Flow

    Time's wheel grinds ever so finely with ease
    Its purpose oft mysteriously deep
    As moon-tide's pull stirs magnificent seas
    Dare we pray for love and peace in our sleep?

    Ever so slowly but surely wheel spins
    Without a whispering creak or loud moan
    Do we pray forgiveness for mortal sins
    Such leeway disappears when we are gone.

    It hums in tune to invisible clock
    Tho' its revolutions we try to slow
    In dark midnight hours we hear its tick-tock
    From that very first breath older we grow.

    As years and life thus ever onward flow
    This world teaches us Fate's hand has it way
    Do we ever learn we are not its show
    And thus seek to prepare for judgement day.

    Time's wheel grinds ever so finely with ease
    Its purpose oft mysteriously deep
    As moon-tide's pull stirs magnificent seas
    Dare we pray for love and peace in our sleep?

    Incarnations Of What Love's Blessed Paradise Extols

    Soft and slow each rising tide that your sweetest loving bring
    that lush hush and touch setting eager seeking hearts aflame,
    those luscious lips that invite passion's hottest heated might
    that resounding chorus as our rendezvous night time sings.

    Sensual swells of joyous ardor in each breast waiting
    for the mounting ecstasy of our heavenly romance
    resplendent glory, the power of our eternal Love
    treasures so far beyond compare in our teenage dating.

    Pleasure surging when moans found unison in gushing glee
    dearest of gems stored as love's majestic depths were explored
    Into Love's virgin forests as we took that first deep plunge
    more than enough, memories for life- our Love you and me.

    Destiny! What gift was cast to such young and eager souls
    Incarnations of what Love's blessed paradise extols.

    Dawn's Glory Is In Its Whispering Glow

    Dawn's glory is in its whispering glow
    its new hope and gifts in its golden beams
    joy at waking to again see life's show
    knowing oft comes a chance to life redeem.

    We may recall, sound of rooster's first crow
    dawn's message, its tender whispering voice
    realize what little we truly know
    about living, love and freedom of choice.

    Rising, dare we ask what happiness gives
    inquire do we with deeper kindness tread
    stand true, knowing in this dark world life lives
    oft waging great battles to get ahead.

    As years, forward march in their steady flow
    and morn continues to gift its sweet calls
    shall we walk with pride, let our mercy grow
    no matter what in life our soul befalls.

    Dawn's glory is in its whispering glow
    its new hope and gifts in its golden beams
    joy at waking to again see life's show
    knowing oft comes a chance to life redeem.

    Rhyme Dark, A bold look inward..
    ( On the inner ponderings of the human soul
    and life's many paths taken )

    Note One:
    I would like to thank my friend, Lawrence Sharp
    and his poem titled, "Of Myth And More Or Less"
    for its seeding my brief ryhming comment made
    to and about that fine poem. To which the idea
    and continued inspiration later gave birth to
    this new creation and my great pleasure in setting
    the composing task to meet a hard criteria while
    staying as much possible within the concept that
    his poem revealed to me...

    Note Two:
    This poem was composed with these set restrictions
    Three stanzas, each stanza eight verses, each
    stanza exactly 60 words, each a total of 80 syllables.
    Each stanza to be able to be a stand alone dark poem,
    were that a choice made. In this case it was not.
    This goal, this puzzle was met and a true joy it was
    to complete the task.

    Each stanza

    That Which Held Me In A Magical Spell

    That which held me in a magical spell
    Dark, its winding infinity and heart
    Its red beach, covered in sad broken shells
    Shreds of humanity once torn apart.
    Within hard gaping gasps and stormy sea.
    Beauty once trampled in mad haste and greed
    Else sadden look at folly within me
    Why on our own swords we oft fall and bleed!

    Deep thoughts and those silent murmurs in life
    Echoes of cavernous pains, woe'some woes
    Memories dredged up by dire worldly strife
    So well hidden that no fear ever shows.
    Mortal wondering, malevolent things
    Deep sorrows and aches they come and they go
    Weak flesh blundering(s), as a dark star sings
    Each a dead corpse as lost and blind we row!

    That which set me in a revolving maze
    Phantasms of meanderings through deep hell
    Gasping fears brought on by insipid craze
    To search those nightmares we should never tell.
    LO! Dare we unsavory black explore
    Dawn armor to such inner sanctums raid
    Seek long sought answers while we ask no more
    Than devil's touch and the cut of his blades?

    I rose this morn, having no intention to compose a poetic word today.
    In fact, I had intended to not write but just read. And in my very first reading, a poem by
    one of my friends and former collaborator inspired me to reply to and about his poem.
    From that on the spot quick reply(of 8 rhyming verses) a seed that germinated and brought forth the new
    poem written just this morn. Such to a poet is a blessing and in my mind one
    should always notify the poet that their poem inspired the creation of another poem.
    Thus I did so, and asked permission to state the facts of how my new poem came to be.
    He agreed and I presented the new poem this morn at my home poetry site.

    The Night The Ravishing Vampire Came To Feast

    She came with the wind dark as night.
    Cried for love, in the bitter dust,
    Her sadden pleas brought a strange must;
    That solemn moment earth shone bright.
    Her aura soaked into us all,
    Its pallid taste, poisons so true
    Morbid thought as flowers she threw
    We saw not the surrounding *pall.

    Our brains felt the resounding blast.
    From afar, as blacken clouds came,
    We knew her touch was not a game;
    For this love felt to ever last.
    As soft echoes sounded her song,
    Winsome breeze enchanted our hearts
    In her paradise we belong
    Only good vibes did she impart.

    Spellbound by her beauty so deep.
    Silence thus, could hear a pin drop
    Time's spinning hands seemed to just stop,
    Each soul cast out a happy weep;
    She sang the sweetest melody
    Her voice ringing its vibrant tone
    Each man felt she loved him alone
    Her dark kiss had no remedy.

    From blacken sky fell dancing light.
    Glowing orbs swaying to and fro,
    Then a trumpet began to blow;
    On us all came darkest of nights.
    Storm appeared, lashing forth red rain,
    We saw bloody drops splashing down
    She next removed her snow white gown
    And we saw her true wicked stain.

    We cried out what the hell are you?
    That now shows such long vicious teeth,
    She said, I come from far beneath;
    To sate my lust and drink from you.
    Terror entering our swelled veins,
    As she from each one took a sip
    From bloody necks she took a nip
    Her harvest yielding fruitful gains.

    As darkness let up she drank fast.
    Our bodies chained within her trance,
    Around us in glee she did dance;
    Surely wanting her feast to last.
    Having drank deep our glowing red,
    She slowed to our pale hands caress
    Declaring this I now confess
    Mortals taste better when not dead.

    As dawn sent its dimmest new rays.
    She announced her tender good-byes,
    Bringing back evil stormy skies;
    She fled from golden light of day.
    Later we woke to day's soft shine
    Asking could that nightmare be real
    Could a vampire from us so steal
    And upon our warm blood so dine?

    Narrative, (Dark)- ( Tales Of That Which Remains Hidden )

    Note- 6/30/2020
    This is a heavily edited version of a dark narrative poem, that I wrote
    many years ago. I have finally got around to editing it.
    And daring to present it my friends.. As always my dark poems are
    composed because of my admiration of the most famous and talented
    Dark poetry master, Edgar Allan Poe.

    I Write And Write Oft Through The Night,
    Words Dedicated To All Poets


    I write and write oft through the night,
    ponder deep, world that slowly creeps
    hold pen, in left hand not the right
    inking heart's truth, as out it seeps
    I write and write oft through the hours
    inking what our souls dare not say,
    gems of life's beautiful flowers
    celebrating the live long day.

    I hope and hope oft through the day,
    wonder well, how we make it through
    hold my faith, oft bowing to pray
    blessings for my loved ones and you
    I hope and hope oft through the storm
    penning wins over our travails
    wherein truest of love is the norm
    and ever onward our love sails.

    I write and write oft through the night,
    I write and write oft through the hours
    I hope and hope oft through the day
    I hope and hope oft through the storm
    Ponder deep, world that slowly creeps
    Inking out what souls dare not say
    Wonder well, how we make it through
    Penning wins over our travails.
