Prompt 20: Myth

Thanks to Mary at Answers to the Questions for this week's prompt, myth. Thanks also for the image, background information, and poem, Mary.

In Shinto, the Japanese Kappa are a type of water imp and are considered to be one of many suijin (literally "water-deity"). From Wikipedia.

My story is a sacred one
about how the world began --
a mythos full of gods,
near-gods, those wrathful beings,
who explain beginnings to fools.
