|Neptune and Salacia|
by Lisa de St. Croix
NEPTUNE and SALACIA
I, Salacia, awed
To control the push and pull of waves
Hid in a faraway ocean
I, Neptune, summoned Dolphin
To bring back lovely Salacia to be my wife
Together we rule the sunlit depths of the sea
Giving birth to Gods and people
Ride the ebb and flow of attraction
Let waves of love lap gently
Delight in the thundering surf of passion
Neptune is the Roman God of freshwater and the sea. His Greek counterpart is Poseidon. Neptune's wife Salacia is the Goddess of the deep sea. Her name means wide open seas; sal means salt.
Neptune wanted to marry Salacia but she was in awe of his powers and hid in the Atlantic Ocean. Neptune sent a dolphin to find her and bring her back. Salacia agreed to marry Neptune and together they ruled the seas. The dolphin was awarded a place in the heavens as the constellation Delphinus.
