Haikus Inspired by Homer

I. Journeyman

My dear faithful wife
I have sailed to save you
Don’t ask of Circe

II. The Sword

A gift for the boy
Last hope of the dying city
The spirit of Troy

III. Legends

Hector Achilles
Giants among mortal men
Men who walked with gods

IV. Cowardice

Crawling from combat
Seeking refuge with Hector
Weak pitiful worm

V. Labyrinth

The maze of the mind
Thoughts memories hopes and dreams
Watch out! Minotaur!

~James Lawson
