Crumbling Home

Persephone and Athena
Two sisters of yore
Together mourned
the loss of their home

Millennia had come and millennia had gone since Zeus and Hera’s
home this had been with
many godly children born within

Zeus rose stones thirty times
his weight encrusting jewels
into the massive castle gates
and crystals throughout within

But the likes of men and the likes
of war Zeus considered not at all
and now their home of long ago is naught but fallen crumbling rock


  1. Dear Ami,

    It seems the gods don’t have it all that easy. 😉 Nicely written verses.
