It's true. It's real.
feathers melt,bare arms flail,a legend commences.that's beautiful and powerful!I enjoyed the lovely flow of words and senses.
Mythology has always intrigued me ... as does your Magpie.
Hi Jingle- Always so supportive..thank you so much!
Hi Helen.. Thanks..it was fun for me to find mythology in a watering can..ya never know!!
Hot, hot, hot. Icarus should have waited until winter--but then all of history (space station?) would have been different. Thanks! good!Mine is HERE
I know this myth but your words today brought this flight and fall to my heart...powerful
There is always so much depth to your poetry...this one is beautiful! :-)
My son has just discovered the Greek myths. I'll have to have him read this. He will love it! Wonderful!
As a passionate classicist and lover of Ancient Greek history, mythology has always fascinated me. Greek myths and legends have such a mystery, such a magic, they have elements of art and philosophy and so much more. And you capture this so wonderfully in your poem.
Hi steveroni- Thanks..it's just as it had to be,I think..that's fate!
Hi Mary Ann- So pleased you liked this...thank you...
Hi Carrie- I'm happy that you like the poem..this one came out of nowhere..that's poetry for you!!
Hi Angie- I'm honored to think you'll show this to your son..thanks! Greek mythology was a fav of mine..
Hi Sam- You have a way of making me believe that I've done something worthwhile! Thank you...
wow-It never ceases to amaze me ow we all find something new in Willow's images. Great take on the photo!
Ooo, beautiful, i'm always up for a good dose of mythology.
nice. the story of icarus is one of my favorites and and intersting twist to the prompt...nice played.
Hi kathew- Thank you..How to explain? I think our unconscious is very powerful.
Hi Lyn,I KNOW I never would have found Icarus in a watering can! I love all of this: the subtle rhyming, choice of words, but especially"A moment for the butterflyto choose a shaded leaf,alight, or setits journey on the brink of chance."
Original idea became an intriguing poem. For mythology fans, the UK author/poet Robert Graves wrote an intro. to the Greek Myths described on Wiki HERE
Hi Patience- There sure is enough for us to tap into...thanks..Hi Brian- Thank you..I too was surprised by where the poem went!!Hi Derrick- Who can say what poetry's about? Glad that it just appears..and that you find it pleasing!Hi Doc- Thank's for visiting..I did go to the wiki site..very interesting..a scholarly entry!
Wonderful drops of mythology emerge from the watering can!
Hi Tumblewords- Thank you..you never know what you'll find "canned" these days!!
Very nice, very nice! I love that....

Ah, a sip for flight for your imagination!
Hi Cat Lady- Thanks...I'll sip to that!! Just this minute visited your magpie..like minds...
My feathers didn't melt...my wings were clipped!Sorry! Just was compelled to double-dip here! Like your style, it goes without saying.....Steve
Hi Steveroni- It's OK...I can't resist being "punny" either..and thanks!!
I should have done magpie earlier! Your poem is awesome, and you are in my reader now. See you around.
LynThis is one simply exquisite poem-- like Sam I am passionate classicist and lover of Ancient Greek history, in my undergraduate studies did a thesis on the Minoan - Crete culture. You had my undivided attention from the start to the end of this eloquent poem. This should be published. Joanny
This is very good, you got the watering can in very neatly too - a very sensous imaginative piece
Hi joanny- Those are words that are deeply appreciated..thank you.. the ancient Greeks continue to inspire! I'm thinking of assembling another book of poetry...
Hi Words a Day- Thank you..I do try to put the basic idea somewhere in the poem..part of the fun!!
You've a way with words, indeed. Great Magpie. Greek Mythology was a favourite subject at high school, which has phased out now. Such a shame.
Hi Lena- Thanks for visiting..and we were lucky in the scope of our studies!
Lyn,With watering can and old sol many a legend is made.rel
Hi rel- Thanks... A very good combo...A legend in my own mind??
I especially like the butterfly part. We all stand on the brink from time to time. And sometimes shooting for the stars is worth the burns. Very nice!
Hi T- I agree..the pause, and then the plunge..we need heroes!!
