GloPoWriMo 2020: 6/30

Today’s challenge asked me to write a poem from the point of view of one person/animal/thing from Hieronymous Bosch’s famous (and famously bizarre) triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. I had never heard of this piece of art before, so I was quite intrigued to give this a shot.

The Gryphon 

Commanding the chariot that Dante sees,
I am legend,
Arriving when beckoned,
Guardian of all that is gold,
Taking good into my protective fold.
Few other creatures have legendary offspring,
But, I, and my hippogriffs, fly on clouds like they are
Soft spring,
Earthly delights when given to me  – are
Nobody but you can see.


Let me know what you think!
