Midi bright October night,
In the sky-eyed clouds,
Gold and silver    then    my Lord
Did radiate thy wondrous light.
At each few steps I paused,
Turned my face upward
To bathe in your suspended strength -
Bearded Zeus,
Thy razor-sharp nose, 
Square-cut head,
Ulotrichous beard,
Blazing away    so near above -
Old Zeus
Cloud gatherer.

    I like the use of mythology in this piece. As you know, Zeus liked the ladies, and frequently dropped to earth for amorous adventures with nymphs and mortals. I can see the images in this piece. Great job! ~Joseph

    Greek Mythology is truly fascinating. Wish they would make a new really cool movie about it. (I could just read : ) Such great magical fantasy to escape to. Love the imagery here. You are caught up in the enchantment of it all. Thanks for sharing. Love, Shar
