The Perfect Moment - VisDare #36


Bow in hand,
Arrow set,
Athena’s eyes fixed
Upon her prey.

He had stood
Before the bronze statue
Marveling at her grace,
Comparing her to his wife,
Insulting the latter.

Tearful eyes
Gazed
At the Goddess of War and Wisdom,
“What would you have me do?”
She whispered as he walked away.

The woman turned
And walked the other way.

Bow in hand,
Arrow set,
Athena’s eyes fixed
On a human with no heart.

She stood,
Waiting for the right distance,
For that perfect moment
To release her arrow
Upon her prey.
