Zeus – A Poem ~ Sadje’s What Do You See

Where do ancient words of the gods go – as the eons fly; remember:

(For example: that high Olympus ruler perched in sky and thunder,

Reduced to coat-of-arms Latin, and, to ornate crafted fist scepters.)


Their raiment, a many colored coat interpreting dreams for Joseph,

Their value: twigs sprouting perennial sapience on the tree of life,

Looking down at time thumbing through history’s folios in amber,

Their eagle-eyes spotting eternal truths roosting in fables’ tundra.
