~ATLANTIS~   Featuring:) Kelly Deschler

Can't be re-written by the Gods
The land and sands of time'
Destroyed by the fire of Poseidon's curse 
Atlantis swallowed by: Earth

In one day and one night
Peaceful existence met its end
Built on a volcano, now surrounded by ancient rippled tears
Lava stripped apart the rich and glorious empire
Enriched by Engineers and Architects whom loved power more than the Gods 
Forgotten souls, sheltered by a watery grave
History withheld from shallow sunken memories,
Western sky's hide the truth, a vision from the Pillars of Hercules
"An island situated in front of The Strait of Gibraltar"
Ghostly ruins wait to rise above the Mediterranean and Atlantic Waves
A magical island held down by the hands of death, 
Atlantis lost city walls ---a secret hidden by mermaids
Partially buried, beneath the ocean floor it lies
The largest sunken treasure never to be found
Magnificent pillars of an imperial palace still stand
Somewhere hidden under ancient sand
Some are leaning against turrets, that toppled after the impact
Nothing human will ever inhabit these walls
No feet will ever touch these staircases, again
Only an eerie silence now resides here, with the blue-green waters   
Seaweed grows along it's outer walls, like ivy on a trellis.
Obscuring it even further from the human eye.
Other ocean tides will never compare
Tantalizing blend of fantasy and mystery
Stone walls covered with precious gems
 -Listen to PLATO'S voice-
"Look close, Look close, into the sea!"
Through the light and Pillars of Hercules
Some where out there buried in the vast

    Beautifully written, this piece breathes its mysterious content throughout. I love reading on Atlantis... Carolyn Devonshire has written a wonderful novel on such content which I found a most enjoyable and relaxing read - you might want check it out!

    Atlantis, per p.d. deep within we know its true, under the water bloody blue, the Atlantic choked with mud, down she went with an awful thud, what Plato said was true... Atlantis is true blue... well done here babe....

    Troy was a myth till some bugger discovered it ? history stops six thousand years ago, before that we were stone age? civilisations rise and fall, with sometimes bitter taste of gall, Atlantis will be proven despite the negative, Archeoligists

    Still a mystery. I wonder how the casino industry did with their version of the city.

    Well Linda, what can I say? You keep topping yourself and Kelly did a fantastic job too...People may think I'm nuts, but I believe Atlantis existed (why not?) The ancient Greeks could possibly have been the decendants of the survivors...

    PD, Linda The Best Collaboration I've read. Amazing how you and Kelly wrote of the creation of the existence and the Epic rise of The Theogony whom doom the perfect paradise. Atlantis a tale that has survived through the writings of Hesiod, Plato, Nostradamus and ECT. Fascinating imagery. this was the answer to the most fundamental question of existence, for the ancient Greeks. Because of mythology, the story Atlantis is shrouded in fantasy and wonder by the world. --continued--
