Golden Fleece

Jason bringing Pelias the Golden Fleece; a win...

Chasing the mythical
All of my life
How many windmills.
How many windmills?
All things fantastical
Fall to my knife
Is this a standstill,
Is this a standstill?

Dreaming of mastery
Could it be mine?
How many quests now,
How many quests now?
I’m just a human
Not part divine
What could I endow,
What could I endow?

Golden fleece shining
In my mind’s eye
What kind of sacrifice,
What kind of sacrifice?
It’s just cheap colouring
It’s just a lie
Diamonds are just ice
Diamonds are just ice

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
