Zeus: I am

August 18, 2011
tags: ,

I am what I am
A god of many forms
Not a rapist
Not a monster

I am the wind
Sculpting the world
Testing the strength
And resolve of all

I am the rain
Flowing over, around
Purifying miasma
Nourishing all life

I am the thunder
Rumbling like a drum
Through the sky and
Through the heart

I am lightning
Unpredictable movement
Instantly enlightening
Uncontrollable change

I am the storm
Hide from me
Or embrace me
Reveling in joy

I am the storm’d oak
Steadfast and true
of earth and sky
I reach for you.

    This poem reads like Zeus Himself. It is if the trees at Dodona whispered the words from His heart to yours.

    So melancholic… It speaks to me, to what I can feel of him sometimes.

      I’m not sure it is melancholic but he does seem to tire of being mis-sed…as in misrepresented and misunderstood and mistaken for something he is not. Thanks.

    very nice! It is always wonderful to see such positive reflective poems written for Zeus. I am still trying to figure out how to get lines close together like that when I post my poetry.

      Thanks. In this case, the inspiration for this poem was taken from one of the stories in the Zeus Devotional.

      As for the formatting, I go in under the HTML tab when I post to remove the extra spaces that WordPress insists on putting in.
