The God in the Mountain

Flogita - 13 September 2019

It stands

a great sail fin of rock

high towering - dominant

cloud mazed

haze hidden seat of hidden gods

and we,  yes,

we would rise to their heights,

stand in their pantheon

to observe the tiny world

beneath.

For from this seat

Prometheus set forth

and with Athena

set us in that tiny mortal world -

yet now we stand

proud on Mytikas:

so brief a triumph

before, a goddess' dance

bids us descend

amongst the rocks

to our small world -

only then did wise old Zeus

appear,  

to smile on our backs
