Selene's Embrace - A Month of Daily Haiku (Day 2)
Poseidon's rage traced in
In this Haiku I've tried to express the power of the sea as a personification, using the Greek gods as a vehicle for metaphor. Poseidon is the Greek god of the sea and Selene is a titan/goddess of the moon. I have included links within the text of the Haiku to learn more about these deities from Greek mythology.
This is day two of my month long challenge - from the 06th of August until the 06th of September - to post a daily Haiku on steem. Each week will have a different theme based on picture prompts from either Pixabay.com or Unsplash.com. This week's broad theme is different natural environments.
I have created a new tag #monthofhaiku. If anyone wants to replicate the challenge please feel free, I will check the tag occasionally and try to curate the better Haiku. However, this is not meant to be a challenge to the writers' community. I have an extremely busy month ahead, and I started this as a personal challenge so that I didn't drift away from posting on steem. Please, forgive me if I'm slow to respond to comments or am not around on discord, I have had to reassess my priorities over the last few weeks.
