Prometheus Bound

On Saturday night I found myself painting the above which I've called Holding the Sun.  Now I know I'm not very good but I found great peace doing it.  I'm working on a poem to go along with it.  I'm interested in the legend of Prometheus.  Prometheus stole fire from the Gods and he was punished by Zeus who had him bound to a mountain where each Eos (dawn) Zeus' eagle would tear at Prometheus' liver.  I think it was Hecules who finally freed Prometheus.  Prometheus' name means forethought!!!

At the moment the poem is proving troublesome.  I think I'm not quite sure what I'm trying to say in it.  Patience!
