The Winter of Forgotten Gods   2 comments

The Winter of Forgotten Gods

The winter felt long
heavier maybe than last year

Elesy stood, engulfed in curtains of mist,
her dark brooding, evident within the swirling
black cumulus clouds surrounding her

Her companion, the god Aiolos, keeper
of storm winds, squalls and tempests
stood in solemn stance protecting

Standing behind them in the winds of Aiolos
I watched, feeling heavy of limb

Elesy stood, her heart wrenched from within
The cold of winter seeping into her body
Where was the warmth of love she craved

Another body of love taken from her
Another failure of Aphrodite
It was not my fault she screamed

The winter felt long
buffeted by the winds of Aiolos

She wanted to dream of times of Apollo
but they became nightmares, haunted
by Ares, the god of war and blood-lust

Elesy, Elesy, Elesy, search for your love
Life is not lost, not even amongst the gods
Artemis, virgin goddess of the hunt, caresses

The winter may feel long, but it is no heavier
You are a goddess of self who will find love
