Nature of Women
Our sweet Persephone is swept from her verdant fields by the strident and powerful Hades, throwing the world to calamity. The life-force of the Earth fades while our princess is Ravaged in the Underworld.
Momma Demeter begins popping emails entreating her return, but the forests and flowers die away without her. Soon the two are texting when father Zeus finally weighs in. Hades is forced give her up.
even though she isn't supposed to,
even though she'd be unthinkably naughty,
even though everyone's effort is only to save her from a fate worse than death,
she eats a Pomegranate Seed
So - After much to-do, it came that
she must return to the Underworld for three
months of every year; and from whenceforth,
we have Winter.
But we know she can't be enjoying it - not OUR little Princess.
