Iceland. Neato!!!

Oh, I'm so envious, Beth! I remember that lunar landscape from our honeymoon, more than 12 years ago now. I yearn to go back.

Beth I thought of your fish post & your travels to the lands of fisherfolk when I read this, this morning.

Word
The word bites like a fish.
Shall I throw it back free
Arrowing to that sea
Where thoughts lash tail and fin?
Or shall I pull it in
to rhyme upon a dish?

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.
