OTI:one poem and notes:4/1/17

 Open To Interpretation

Back Before Now

"The bipeds...their teeth...
I saw them eat!"
Said Petra.
"And to ride across the hills
As one with them!"
"Might and Violence,"
Said Ishmael,
"It was the worst of things,
It was the best of things."
"How can such be so?"
Asked Petra.
"Beauty and Truth,"
Said Dana.
"Always our challenge."
Dana looked at Petra,
Saw Ishmael on her
Other side,
And quickly returned his gaze
To the flowing Creek.
A murmuring duck swam by
With her ducklings in tow.
Petra examined the toy lyre,
Nemo's souvenir gift
Of their adventure,
Resting in her palm,
And it played a tune.
"Minuet in G."
Said Dana.
"An oft time tune of my crew."
Said Petra,
One arm around each,
Ishmael and Dana,
She stood.
"I must be off to tell
Black Dragon Pet,
Benitoite and Ametrine will love this!"


Notes: reference Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, Might and Violence... Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities, It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...John Keats Ode to a Grecian Urn, Truth is Beauty, Beauty Truth...oh, and The Toys Lovers Concerto...and wiki's take:
