Moon Goddess
By Kristina Diane Smith


Dried leaves played with her mass of dark curls
Like an aphrodisiac.
Her body had been spread over the boiled surface,
Antlers of Deer rested upon her breast.
Young and old,
Make way for the Goddess Artemis.
Protector of children,
Caretaker of animals,
Grant us comfort in our time of needs.
Watch over us on the moon beam -
Keep a fallen star lit for me.
Goddess, Goddess, please watch over me.
