Writing Prompt: Poseidon for a day: Poseidon, in Greek mythology, was called “the God of the Sea.” He had control over what happened in the oceans, from earthquakes to the routes of ships. Imagine that you get to be Poseidon for a whole day. How would you spend that day? Would you explore the bottom of the ocean? Would you rearrange the islands? Would you splash around and make waves? Would you pick up the boats like they were toys and play with them? Using lots of good details, describe your day as Poseidon.
