Morganella Pendragon

Near the mists of Avalon
The animals gathered
A highflying eagle
And friendly wolves

In these times
Only the animal kingdom
Has friendly wolves
The human kingdom
Is full of demonic wolf spirits
Particularly those inhabiting
The walls of the Vatican

Elon Musk’s artificial moon looked
Perfectly natural
In this Glastonbury atmosphere


And on this night
Protected by her wolf companions
And watched over by her highflying eagle
Morganella Pendragon
Immortal great-niece of the enchantress Morgan
Stood with cross-bow in hand

She had been taught the art of cross-bow
By Chiron the Centaur
And Cernunnos the Celtic stag god
There were very few cross-bow archers
Better than she

And now she would use her cross-bow
To slay
Those hordes of zombie nosferatu
Who had arisen
In this England’s green and pleasant land
Where the heels of devils walk
On England’s mountains green
And devilish countenance on
England’s once pleasant pastures seen.

    So true these lines are.

    The combination of mythic imagery with modern day people is so strangely beautiful.

      It is, Judy. ❤

      I’ve noticed that.

      I suppose that’s why I bring mythic imagery into the modern world in my writing so often.
