delphic storm



blue sky and birdsong

portents mean nothing

this day that began benignly

devolved into something

circe might relish

the keel has righted

the waves calmed

the storm passed   

but what does that say

of my addiction to portent

should i look askance

at blue sky and birdsong

submit to the untoward 

tie myself to the mast

I liked the reference to the Odyssey, and is it Odysseus talking here? Or is it that we are all Odysseus? There is a unsettling mood in the poem, that fit's in with the portents - nice one.
