  • What a beautiful day. The sun is shining the flowers are laughing. I'm so happy yet something is missing. I long to find love.
  • What a beautiful day. The sun is shining the flowers are laughing. I'm so happy yet something is missing. I long to find love.
  • Persephone's father Zeus, the God of the sky, heard his daughters cries and decided to send her Eros's love arrow. The arrow misfired hitting Hades, the God of the underworld.
  • From the ground rose the God of the Underworld, Hades. He captured Persephone and whisked her into a golden chariot where they left for the underworld...
  • When Persephone's mother Demeter, the Godess of corn, grain and harvest, found out that her daughter was gone, she turned livid and angry, herself turning grey and old. The flowers and crops all died leaving a desolate, barren wilderness.
  • Demeter searched high and low trying to find her beloved daughter, but could not find her. She flew to Zeus where she demanded to know where Persephone was, here discovering Zeus's plot to marry their daughter off to Hades.
  • Persephone started to love her new king although she still missed her mother. She then thought about the beautiful green landscape up above, the chirping of the birds and the, gleaming and glistening sun.
  • As time passed by land started to darken. Zeus knew that without Demeter's happiness everyone and everything would die. So Zeus ordered Hermes to travel to the Underworld to persuade Hades to return Persephone to her grieving mother.
  • Persephone returned to her joyful mother where immediately the world turned light and colorful. Crops were sprouting, flowers were blooming and the feel of happiness spread across the land. When Persephone were to return to her love in the underworld, Demeter would cover the world with snow and ice, to display her sadness.
  • Hermes suggested to Hades that if Persephone eat just one pomegranate seed then she would be able to stay with Hades for one month, however Persephone ate four which meant that she would have to return to her King for four months every year.
  • Hermes the messenger entered the underworld expecting to see an upset torn apart Persephone but instead he saw a beautiful radiant Queen of the Underworld. She had settled in well but she still wished to see her mother up above, she was torn by her desire to remain Hades' wife.
