Then and Now

Danaides

condemned to severe punishment in hell

compelled to fill with water

a vessel full of holes

water runs out as soon as poured in

their labor was infinite

punishment eternal

Sisyphus

tried to cheat death

carries a perpetual boulder

up the hill to see it roll back down again

Now the multiverse

peering into the unseen

universe beyond universe

endless explanations

Then and Now

Dragon Lore

Dragon songs fill the air

audible only to dragon

too soon to tell what was heard

since being tethered in the atmosphere

waiting

to be cut loose that windy day

what flight

their songs fall below

let us know         how real

the dragons are
