More Than StarsA soft howl roams over snaking dunes,
Lingering in the soft black landscape of stars.
But her eyes didn't wander above
To where the celestial bodies ruled the night.
There was someone that was worth more
Than the illusional beauty of the stars.
It was her love that rested soundly on her chest,
Her presence that swelled in her heart
That not even the stars can capture.
In the AlleywayOn a cold January winter,
A litter of brothers and sisters
Followed their Mama that day.
Every kitten was shivering and starving,
And their Mama had to find a way.
As she led them to a narrow alley,
Her nose caught a scent of food.
Her kittens padded after her
Hoping to eat and sleep soon.
A scrawny calico kitten was staggering behind.
She was too tired and cold to walk.
There wasn't enough to eat last night,
And she stumbled to the floor.
Her Mama was unaware of her daughter,
And she continued to walk without her.
Her family left her body alone
In the chilly bitter dark.
Soon the felines arrived at the dump.
Their Mama leaped on top of a garbage can
And dug out anything she could find.
In her mouth she carried down what she had.
While her kittens were eating ravenously,
She realized one of her children was missing.
She immediately commanded her kittens to stay
And went back to find her lost kitten in the alleyway.
Suddenly she smelled her child
And spotted her lying on the ground.
BritomartisOf all the companions of Artemis
The Goddess loved Britomartis the best.
Britomartis was a Cretan girl who lived by the sea,
And there she spent her time frolicking in the wildwoods and leaves.
She vowed to Artemis that a virgin she would always remain
And never to leave the wilderness's domain.
For she, the great huntress of Crete,
Would never bend down to any man's feet.
One day while she mediated upon a cliff
To rest from the hunt's shift,
King Minos spotted her afar from a ship
And felt love kiss him on the lips.
He said, "I must know her name
For I shall be damned with shame
To not know this beautiful maiden there
Whose hair and face so fair."
He stopped the ship and went ashore
To climb the cliff where the girl had won his adore.
Britomartis who was confused began, "Who goes there
That climbed the rocky steep?" Her eyes glared.
"I am King Minos," he said with pride,
"And I desire to make you as my bride
For you have won my heart miles away;
No woman in my life could make me sway.
