  6. I love haiku AND mythology - how can I resist?

    Mirror-dark god of crossroads,
    Why so very glum?

  8. "Do not look at me!"
    As if Psyche would listen
    Cupid is stupid

    Risen from the foam
    She emerges from the waves
    Mighty Aphrodite

    Odin the father
    Finds wisdom in sacrifice
    Sees all with one eye
