Hellenistic reverie

 

Caressed together by the waters of Corinth

Into the darkest forests chasing statuary nymphs

The decadence of Hellenistic love

Blissfully raining tears from above.

 

“The condo of the virgin” sitting empty

The goddess long dissolved into the néant

You softly reading Hebrew texts in Greek

The painful comedy of life on sale this week.

 

—————————————————————-

“The condo of the virgin” refers to the Parthenon, temple dedicated to Athena who was a virgin goddess.

  1. Mythology and poems inspired by them have always been one of my passions, I remember borrowing all sorts of books from the library to understand them all 🙂
