Zeus's Seduction of Danae

Zeus's Seduction of Danae

A Poem by Hawaiian_fire

Dreamy face
 head of golden 
strawberries
locked away 
in a tower of 
mossy mortar 
and stone
from a father, 
a king wretched, 
yet afraid to kill.

Skin paled as 
rotting flesh
but eyes blue like fire 
as dawn's revealed.
Flames burning 
surrounded by 
walls of ice.

You spend the day 
peering out 
of the small portal
trying to catch 
a handful of sunlight 
to take with you 
as you sleep.
And recite the love 
songs of distant birds
taking roost in the 
Norfolk pine.

Danae, 
tonight as you dream 
of rainbows and clover,
I shall come to you, 
In a shower of gold.

Do not fear, 
for I alone 
have heard your plea,
and I shall impregnate you 
with hope and a new song
a thousand legions 
cannot destroy.
