The return of Adonis

***

Adonis is coming down from Olympo tonight.

At the back of a Golden Pegasus he rides,

Guided by Venus, rescuing my soul.

Amongst the Gods he was unhappy.

***

In Eternia the moon was not as passionate,

The Sun was not as translucid,

And the Stars were not as mesmerising,

As they appear to us here in Gaya.

***

No wonder the Gods envy us!

In their forever, they know not

The meaning of Now.

***

In such immortality, life has no value,

Experiences are taken for granted, and

Happiness is boring!

***

Some Gods prefer our short rich life,

Rather than a long misguided Eternity.

***

I am glad my Adonis is coming Home,

His Eternal Love will resonate forever

In my Soul.
