King Neptune’s Retirement (#writephoto)

Neptune Image by KL CALEY

~ā™„~

King Neptune still cut

A handsome figure in his

Trim-toned verdigris

Years, graced with rich patina…

And he enjoyed retirement

~

With Spring came fishing

Lazy days, slow water’s gleam

But Salacia

Beloved wife he’d yearned for

Had a different agenda

~

Women…go figure

She loved bustling marketplace

Craft fairs, pottery

Pleaded, wheedled:Ā  “Come on, Hon…

We might find a new statue”

Soul’s Ache

Reconnoiter day

Anxious dread tens to ambush

Soul’s ache pleads for ease
