Centaurs

Centaurs ~*~ In Greek Mythology monsters come in all shapes sometimes hideous and strange . . . often representing the dark forces in life, creatures such as Centaurs-- part human and part horse, they are man's unruly, instinctive nature, less awesome that demons . . . they still harassed and haunted humans. They had the head, arms and chest of a man but the legs and lower half of a powerful horse. These man-horse beasts led a lustful, drunken and savage life and were fond of riotous revelries often writhing in fierce battles with wild brute force . . . raping, killing humans for meat. The wise Centaur, Chiron was a unique case-- he was learned in music, medicine, hunting and war. He was friend to Apollo, and Zeus, loved, admired and honoured by all the great gods. He was noted for his gentleness and kindness and wisdom. . . tutor to Greek heroes. When he died Zeus set him in the night sky as the starry constellation known now as Centaurus. ~*~ June 5, 2013 Narrative For the contest, Mythological Animals or Birds

    I Minored in Greek History, so I really enjoyed reading this one! Regarding the syllable count in my kimo, I counted 10/7/6 syllables... unless you are counting "mingling" as two syllables rather than three? If that's the case, let me know and I'll revise it :) Thanks for the heads up!
