Chloris

behold fair Chloris

the Greek goddess of flowers,

growth, transformation

she drinks deeply of

the all-nurturing, western

stream of Okeanos

before returning

to happily dance and sing

in Elysian Fields

  2. Ah this is gorgeous. Greek mythos is one of my favorite subjects to write about.
