Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I especially love the last one, Beth. Lovely.

The second Haiku is wonderful.

'alight on still-bare branches:' must necessarily be make the magnolia into a spring pioneer.

Oh, oh, I'm so envious of the banjo music, having been very much enthused by Dave's recent podcast and the wonderful film project he linked to! Even more envious of the trip to New York and what, and especially who, you saw there, of course.

I'm wondering whether to take my laptop or stay unplugged when I go away for a few days next week - I see the B&B has WiFi, but I think unless truly terrible weather is forecast (somewhat likely - it remains cold and mostly wet in Englnad) I will not take my laptop.

I just stumbled on a link to your site that I found on "Time Goes By" and my immediate reaction is simply "Wow"! It's really exciting and energizing to see something so "cool" done by an "almost-conetmporary". (I suspect from a cursory glimpse of your site that you're a bit younger than me- maybe about the same age as my child-bride of 35 years.)
Anyway, you and your site have made my day. Now I'm a "lurker"
Thanks

I love these sharp, clear little vignettes. Just right.

some haiku poets often forget the quiet yet ironic philosophical whisper of the third line. yours are not only bent but also beautiful.
