Artemis revisiting...

'you dreamt of me...
And so I am here...'
Said she...
In bows and arrows...
Like a huntress...
A deer by her side
Standing...
Calm...
Smiling...
Both of them...

he looked at the beauty...
White garland of rose over her neck...
White blossoms like armlets...
Spreading fragnance so ambrosaic...

Her face was shiny...
As if she had worn some kind of a cream...
Straight from some heavenly parlour...

She was youngish...
Her voice had tenderness...

'who are you?
An angel?'

he asked...
Could not remove his curious bedazzled eyes
From her...

'you wrote about me...
Once...
And you forgot?'

She asked...
Smiling...

he looked at her eyes...
Benign...like a sea bluish green...
Her hair...braided and tied by twines...

'Artemis?
Twin sister of Apollo?
Daughter of Zeus and Leto?'

he gushed...
Recognising her...
Finally...

She smiled...
The deer...
She smiled too...

'you dreamt...
About me...
Aren't you?
Last night?
When the moonlight
Fell through the curtain of leaves...
Trembling in the breeze...
On your sleepy face...
And you prayed...
Your left palm
On your breast...
To Zeus...
To Apollo...
Seeking Peace...
And tranquil Life...
So...
See?
I am here...
With my deer...'
She informed...
She the omniscient informed...

he bowed...
And on the grass...
Which had wild flowers...
White with yellow dots at the center...
Smiling in the breeze...
he bowed...
To touch her feet...
