Aware now of its order;
Beauty apparent.
The voided and the nebulous eye.
Thought and memory span the divide.

Mjolnir

The man of might delights
in challenges of brawls.
The hardships hight his heart
to falling fields of fights,
to face foemen fearsome,
seeking to hero slay,
this leman of Mjolnir.

If history was food part 3

Wg Said the GRACE
And Robbie BURNS the BACON,

And Thomas ask for MORE
Mr KIPLING  baked the cakes
And Jude laid down the law
And Lionel MESSI had to clean up
With Hoover>

Dinosaur Descendant

A rolling roar erupts from above; echoes across the plains.
A living legend soars from craggy spires; a sacred sky beast.
An age old descendant; thunder bird wings darken cloudy skies.

Robin's Banquet

The merry men and Robin Hood
Were drinking in the local wood
And roasting harts.*

The meat, they said, was very good;
They even ate, it’s understood,
The private parts.

Magnificent, awe-inspiring, This primal dweller of the Primordial Garden, keeper of, Ha! the "Tree of Knowledge", Winding through the labyrinth of time, cultures, legends and lore!

Hyacinth

He stole the heart of the Sun
Charmed the western wind
Then on a whim
He played a game with them
at the greatest cost
It was a terrible fight
For by jealousy's might
And the discus's flight
Hyacinth's life was lost

The Green Eye Monster

The green eyed monster is under the bed,
Hopefully it is just in my head!
Now it's in the closet,
Right now I wish it would be struck by a comet.
The green eyed monster is under the bed,
But I know it is just in my head.

chiron

the stamp of hooves, 
why doesn't he move.
this is it,
it all comes to this.
the epocaliptic fight, 
is here at midnight.
why doesn't he fire,
isn't this his desire.
will we survive,
this is being written live.
kronos rises.

GIKWITMH

GIKWITMH

Giggles and kisses with many hugs;
   "         "       "       "       "       "   .

Sounds like the chant in Wizard of Oz.
What do you think? Now you try to
pronounce the title.
