MYTHOS

 

IMG_2237

 

Here, once again

I am in the land of Mythos

 

I keep coming back for communion

With Zeus, Athena, Poseidon and the others

 

I have traced Ariadne’s footsteps

through the maze of the Minotaur

 

I have drunk and danced

with Dionysus in the dark

 

I have leaned on the portal

of Apollo in  Naxos

 

I have bathed in the tears

of Persephone

 

I have crept along the crater

of the volcano in Atlantis

 

I have sung with Sappho

in the sea

 

I have cried a second river

in Hades

 

I have loved with Aphrodite

in my heart

 

I believe in the stories

of our people

 

I believe we live them

 

I believe we are them

    Beautiful. I love the way you have reached out and linked with so many gods/goddesses.

    Thank you. I’m redrafting this poem and extending and elaborating on the mythic content, so keep an eye on updates coming soon.
