Zeus… Lusting

image by 272447 at pixabay

Zeus lusting for the noble nymph Danae
Gathered his clouds to screen his desires
Called on Hephaistos to stoke up the fires
Called for Ares to sharpen his weapons

∼His startling hard-thrusting lightning
∼His ear-cracking thunderous bolt
∼His chariot’s horses with hoofs hard pounding

Then hand-fisted his sword while thinking of squeezing and easing into tight-fitting sheaths.

He sought out Poseidon to deal for the sultry seas to surrender their moist laden steam
Then consulted with ancient alchemists
To downpour on the nymph in a shower of gold
