#AtoZChallenge: O


Theme: My Favorite Stories in Haiku

The Trojan war ended with the deception of Troy and the gift of a wooden horse. The city fell when the Achaeans emerged from the horse and slaughtered the unprepared Trojans.  Achaean warriors departed the Trojan shores leaving the city decimated.  The Odyssey is the poet Homer’s tale of one warrior’s journey home after years away from his people and his wife. Odysseus meets many challenges on his journey homeward. Whether he is tricking a cyclops or escaping the clutches of Calypso, this epic poem is riddled with suspense and adventure. Homer’s lyrical story of a warrior returning to his devoted wife is definitely one of my favorite stories.


O is for The Odyssey

Called by the sirens.

His fight did not end at Troy.

A warrior returns.
