Zeus speaks this year, “I will celebrate the turn of the year by lighting up the sky with my own works.I shall remind humanity about their frailty and simplicity.”
I feel the hairs rise upon my neck
As static as the sky
As hot as the earth
As cold as the wind
Mans fireworks pale
My life I consider at risk
I ponder my death
But my house is a mess
…..not tonight Zeus
Bats scream in the air as their desperation to feed is mixed with terror by the forces that surround them
Is it war??
Bats appear like bombers in the sky
Backlit by lightening that causes them to scream in terror … or excitement?
Vampires also spring to mind
But even they wouldn’t risk the sky tonight
I await to hear festive fireworks from the little town
But they have been cancelled tonight
A couple of illegal crackers are heard
The authorities refuse to light their own
They smell litigation in the air
Zeus it is your stage tonight.
You are The Spectacle!
….Are you dancing or mad?
People fake normality, they place their lives into the hands of the gods as they try to go about their way, pretending not to be afraid.
Come the New Year
I bid you welcome
As Hope springs eternal for Love, Health and Possibilities.
