(Aφροδίτη ) Aphrodite - Eclipsed

Venus, by Henri Pierre Picou.

On a golden summer day a female form, 
rose high out of the sea.
Pearls of glistening morning dew
caught in sea spray hung from her tresses. 
She laughingly whispers a promise to ascend to Olympus in the gold morning sky.

Like  a divine symphony
the song of sirens haunting melodies,
resonate through the sultry sea breeze,
singing  a sweet song of the beauty  
of the High Tempestuous of Love 
who was born from the foam of the sea,
named Aphrodite.

 The Pearls of Aphrodite, by Herbert Draper.
 As the Emerging beauty 
from the passionate sea,
steps on to the shore she is
surrounded by a sensuous mist that dissolves

into a nebulous haze
scenting the air with a
fusion of love, beauty and passion,
this chrysalis moment.

 She is the essence 
of the perfect goddess,
creamy skin, and glistening
silky long flowing hair.

 The Horae cloth her  
in golden robes and jewels
and bedeck her golden hair
with a crown of gold refinement.

                                                                                                       Transcending metamorphosis,
Aphrodite was ready and willing
to be ravishing and fulfilling, 
she invites us to come with her 
to  that mythical place
where fantasy encompasses 
time and space.

Two distance lovers 
on the Cyprus beach
locked together in a 
sweet sensual embrace,
waves murmur from the sea 
the sound of ancient voices
that only lovers can hear.

 Aphrodite looks on from 
her place in the timeless
iridescent night sky
where the Gods dwell 
and her laughter is heard 
by the two lovers entwined 
in a rapturous embrace. 
 for of all the time we spent together on this soulful journey, I never thanked you-- this is for you.
