alexander, what might have gone through your mind…

alexander, what might have gone through your mind…

alexander-the-great-quotes-featured

on golden rod bend sun sheen
strolls on by the strident king
glides on through and between
these careful rows of winter wheat
Oh, Alexander!
keeper of the namesake
halter to the great mantle
a border past beyond barriers
ties brothers out landscape born
for in the eyes of the conqueror
begets the lion’s roar

notes… I imagine a conqueror must be both fierce and strong… but at times pauses to admire the landscape in between battle that bear namesake… and also I am invoking the elysian fields type of view as well,  there is other commentary in this poem, we will see how many of you get it, I have no idea why this popped into my head, it just did, who am I to argue with the universe? I just work here…
