To anyone that has truly explored my poetry, or has been here for a while, you would know I’m an enormous lover of Ancient Greece and it’s many tales. From those, a pletora of my poems have bloomed, and even some proses (in portuguese, for example, Psique), and some poems published here drawing from the subject (Thanatos & Baldur and Styx).
These do not represent my “body of poems” which I would call purely of my making, but they serve as a great exercise in sound, structure and thematic for any young poet out there (including myself). It’s also great to refine certain specifics of your writing style.
This new one was tons of fun to write, I’m always deeply entranced by this tale, and it’s divided in two parts, the other one to come later under the name of her consort (which I use to write from first view, Hippomenes).
