For June I have decided to play with mythic tales – starting with Roman epics. Your poem can retell the tales, rewrite & refresh it – use it as a metaphor or a jumping off point, be a persona poem or an elegy – whichever the muse(es) whisper to you.
Today’s prompt starts with “Cassandra” who was blessed by Apollo to utter true prophecies but also cursed by him that no-one would believe her.
Which also leads to Cassandra Complex – living with disbelief – which I know I have been afflicted with on several occasions.
If you’re looking for National/Global Days to writie about – Today is
And I am including a shout-out to Chrissy for reaching out to me! It was great hearing from you. You were the highlight of my day!
