Greek Mythology Moodboards- Dike was the goddess of justice, fair judgements and the rights established by custom and law. She was one of the three Horai, goddesses of the seasons, and keepers of the gates of heaven. Her sisters were Eunomia and Eirene. Like her siblings, she probably also represented an aspect of springtime growth.
“…I see a white stream that comes down from the snows,” he (Legolas) said. “Where it issues from the shadow of the vale a green hill rises upon the east. A dike and mighty wall and thorny fence encircle it. Within there rise the roofs of houses; and in the midst, set upon a green terrace, there stands aloft a great hall of Men. And it seems to my eyes that it is thatched with gold. The ligh of it shines far over the land. Golden, too, are the posts of its doors. There men in bright mail stand; but all else within the courts are yet asleep.“
“Edoras these courts are called,” said Gandalf, “and Meduseld is that golden hall. There dwells Théoden son of Thengel, King of the Mark of Rohan.” (The Two Towers, p. 661)
If you don’t know the kind of person I am and I don’t know the kind of person you are a pattern that others made may prevail in the world and following the wrong god home we may miss our star.
For there is many a small betrayal in the mind, a shrug that lets the fragile sequence break sending with shouts the horrible errors of childhood storming out to play through the broken dike.
And as elephants parade holding each elephant’s tail, but if one wanders the circus won’t find the park, I call it cruel and maybe the root of all cruelty to know what occurs but not recognize the fact.
And so I appeal to a voice, to something shadowy, a remote important region in all who talk: though we could fool each other, we should consider— lest the parade of our mutual life get lost in the dark.
For it is important that awake people be awake, or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep; the signals we give — yes or no, or maybe — should be clear: the darkness around us is deep.
