Now with extra sauce!
This is lovely, Tina! Very evocative. Especially - Cascading/Over trembling hands/As he drank/Her sweet kiss
OMG, how I've missed you!!! Yes, I know it's all my fault. Back into the blog visiting at last after a LOOOOOOONG hiatus. And SO looking forward to more of your awesome stuff!!!!
Deluge : )Love this poem, Tina, and the way it rains down the page.
Like Kymm, I love the word deluge. It's just evokes emotions. Winter ruins everything. (Even the word 'snow' makes me sad)This was beautiful.
Damn you, winter! I was really loving their love.
Love the pacing in this - the long opening words and actions, followed by the shorter sharp ones of the second stanza that make the deluge come alive. Beautiful.
I like everything about this piece. Nice job!
oh how gorgeous! Love this, "As he drank Her sweet kiss" !!
I like your version of the story better: Persephone and Hades being in love.
A love story of the ages!
One of my favourite stories and you tell it so poetically. Wonderful!
UGH! And winter totally arrived this week, too. lol You did a wonderful job with your words!
"Hateful Winter" indeed! Your descriptions are sublime, and so very concise.
Have not experienced a terrible winter but I this describes it well.
I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
