Egads! or: King of the Mountain

A limerick

Zeus refused to share his peppers (that welch!)
But no gods argued (for fear they'd get squelched).
... Down below, all the mortals
Shut and bolted their portals,
For the skies turned red when great Zeus belched.

This week, Sadje offers us this image by Johannes Plenio (Unsplash) of nimbostratus clouds refracting the setting sun, giving them a grayish-red hue that is reflected in the water below.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
