OTI:three poems and notes:4/19/19

Open To Interpretation
An eternal echo,
A cross on a hill,
A daffodil by a creek.
What grateful thanks you hear from them
So long as you show promise to them.
To your bunk you retire,
Their smiles and fond looks
Last seen as eyelids close.
And the night anxious
Shadows return,
And you get up,
Lock the gates.
One Fell Swoop
What's Zeus to do?
In one fell swoop,
Orpheus flew off
With Hephaestus, Hermes,
Prometheus, Epimetheus,
And Eurydice too,
All on the backs
Of Dragon Cadmus
And Dragon Harmonia!
Beyond the Pillars,
His wrath can't reach them.
Zeus will deliver 
Lightning blasts
Where he can.
So ever mortals
Have been hen pecked
By Zeus' silver pin pricks.
Athena was set
To constrain Hephaestus,
And have Jason and
Black Ship Argo
With the Northern
Black Dragon Flight
Retrieve the lyres
And stifle Nemo.
Hades sees an opportunity
To un-throne Zeus.
Poseidon too
Dreams of Oceans to take
Beyond the Pillars.
Minos and Theseus,
Dropped off home
By King Alcinous Black Ship,
Regroup at Piraeus,
Athens' siege returning,
Athena's and Poseidon's
And what of our hero?
Who is the Tales' hero?
Some Greek?
Mortals join
The Titanomachy renewed
And now decide the fate of gods.
Notes: Egg...reference the crossword puzzle clues like riddles of the Song of Amergin...which I'm not very good at!...Bunk...hmmph...checking on spelling for Titanomachy, I happened on:
The Bloodbath of B-R5RB or the Battle of B-R5RB was a massive-scale virtual battle fought in the MMORPG space game Eve Online, and was possibly the largest player versus player battle in history.
... ... ...
To commemorate the sheer size and cost of the battle, the game's creators, CCP Games, erected a permanent monument in the system B-R5RB named "The Titanomachy", consisting of non-salvageable capital ship wrecks.
OTI is one year old...I'm nearly done watching the Game of Thrones episodes...there's some overlaps, similarities...the phrase 'Open to Interpretation' is bandied about during some discussions while on horses...the fencing instructor is fond of saying 'just so', somewhere on the map is 'Reach'; to name a few of many...both the Tales and GOT are pastiche's...I have not lifted from GOT, and now have to be on guard for such, having watched it...GOT is cliff hanger soap opera fare...hopefully, similarities end there!...update: changed doors to gates...and finished the episodes...and now in anticipation of Season 7 with everyone else!
