Haiku My Heart: A Chalice

A Rocky Chalice
Encircles a Wine Dark Sea
Burnished with Sunlight.
~Noelle Renee 2/17/11
Even so I yearn day after day, longing to reach home, and see the hour of my return. And if some god should strike me, out on the wine-dark sea, I will endure it, owning a heart within inured to suffering. For I have suffered much, and laboured much, in war and on the seas: add this then to the sum.’
As he spoke the sun dipped, and darkness fell.
(words spoken by Odysseus)
~The Odyssey, Book V, tr. Andrew Lang, 1887
