Photographic Print. Heron and Bluebells around a garden pond with Cherry Blossom floating.
This is my garden pond before I removed the Brambles but with the Cherry Blossom floating, it looked like a dark river flowing.
In Greek mythology Lethe, the river of forgetfulness, was one of the five rivers of the underworld of Hades, the other four are Acheron, the river of sorrow, Cocytus, the river of lamentation, Phlegethon, the river of fire and Styx, the river that separates Earth and the Underworld. Leth flowed around the cave of Hypnos and through the Underworld where all those who drank from it experienced complete forgetfulness. According to Statius, it was next to Elysium, the final resting place of the virtuous. Ovid wrote that the river flowed through the cave of Hypnos, god of sleep, where its murmuring would induce drowsiness.
In Virgil's epic Latin poem, Aeneid, Aeneas travels to Lethe to meet the ghost of his father in Book VI of the poem and he writes that it is only when the dead have had their memories erased by the Lethe that they may be reincarnated.
Lethe was also the name of the Greek spirit of forgetfulness and oblivion and in Classical Greek, the word literally means oblivion, forgetfulness, or concealment.
