Neptune, The Saviour

Neptune, The Saviour

Oh, God of the living sea
Blue as an Angels eyes
Your dreams, artistry and empathy
carry me to the deepest skies

And with Salacia, your Queen and lover
And your brothers by your side
Jupiter and Pluto, the mighty twins
Over Heaven, you preside

And the earthly world and underworld
And all that is therein
With chariots of fire
You survey the realm within

Oh God of springs, rivers and waters
And the marriage of Heaven and Earth
Protect us from all that's evil
From that magical day of birth

Hi Barry...Every planet and created thing has such reason and personality it make us feel so small in the scheme of things...and Neptune seems to be viewing it all in its position...Wonderful imagery.  I enjoyed. xo ;)

Reads like an intergalactic prayer, very different but I love it.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Gerard. I like the sound of 'intergalactic prayer'. That can be it's sub title.  Barry

Bloody hell Barry...you really are so good, why haven't I seen more of your work before? Isn't it just mind blowing?? The vastness and mystery and beauty of it all ...I truly think that the only thing we need to right our mental health issues is documentaries about the cosmos because only then does it truly hit home how insignificant we and our troubles are...we are so small I wonder if we truly exist..lol. great read 💕
