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.
