Weekly Scribblings #2: Myth-placed (posted by Rommy)
“Today I’d like you to craft your pieces around the idea of a mythological time or place. This challenge is open to both poetry and prose pieces (fiction or non-fiction), but if you choose to go with prose please keep it to 369 words or fewer.”
If she should show up at your door
at the indecent hour of 4:00
would you recognize her? Are you sure?
If her hair is tangled loose and wild
and from constant crying she has red eyes,
Then someone soon must say good-bye.
She enters your home, wailing, keening,
mourns for three days, then takes her leave,
she’s Lady of Death; you’ll soon be grieving.
