Wait for...
Persephone,
Goddess of Spring, goddess of Hades,
good with flowers, fond of snakes,
her life divided between eternal youth
and an older man.
Rather modern, really,
not a virgin goddess, patiently weaving,
but, you could say, a goddess
of the bi-polar, of those wandering
between Heaven and Hell.
She sits beside you, ready to guide you.

///

Persépole,
Deusa da primavera, deusa de Hades,
íntima das flores, amante de cobras,
divide a sua vida entre a eterna juventude
e um homem mais velho.
Muito moderna, por assim dizer,
não uma deusa virgem, tecelã paciente,
mas, digamos, uma deusa
dos bi-polares, daqueles que vagueiam
entre o Céu e o Inferno.
Ela senta-se ao teu lado, pronta a guiar-te.

Very well seen Armando. One of your best, I think. It deserves a poem.

This is an interesting scene Armando !
It looks like they are both waiting !
People like to put such statues in their gardens, but in a coffee-shop ( if it is ?) it is more unusual .:-)
The young lady sits on a tree trunk and makes me think of a forest nymph. The movement of the head and the hands, the cloth not quite hiding her nudity, all this reminds me of a Frederic Leighton's painting (the Nymph of the Dargle")
The man with his back turned appears more interested in viewing the street ..

she is Persophone, the Goddess of flowers, displaced in a coffee shop, crossed with "the man more interested in viewing the street" :)
