city full of lotus eaters
sleeping in peaceful apathy;
a life with no reality

dancing in the wind
with a slowly fading mind
drowning in the bliss

sunlight beating down
creating dark shadows on the ground
they move all around

city full of silence
whispers unheard in the distance
surviving by ignorance

they eat their lotus flowers
drifting hour by hour
nothing but a blank stare
is anything even there

IVY  

by nikepages
 
Ivy was a sacred plant of the Greek god Dionysos, the god of wine, fertility and the theatre. It is said that at a celebration honouring Dionysos, a young maiden, Cissos, who overdid the dancing, drinking and celebrating, died of exhaustion, so Dionysus turned her into an ivy plant. Since then, the god was said to wear a crown of ivy leaves in memory of the poor young woman who died in his honour in a paroxysm of ritual madness.


 
Dana Dionysos
