Chimera of Wonder

In Greek mythology, the Chimera a fire-breathing monster, sported a lion's head, goat's body and a dragon's tail. She terrorized inhabitants of Lycia until their king, Iobates, asked the hero Bellerophon to slay her. 
Iobates had an ulterior motive; his son-in-law wanted Bellerophon killed.  

The king felt certain the Chimera could do it. Bellerophon called on Pegasus, the winged horse and brought the Chimera down from the sky.


The creature lived on in the imagination of many. It also meant something fanciful, and less fierce.

Imagine an unrealized dream instead of a monster. 

Write to develop your chimera of wonder.
