Athena's Birthday


















by Justine C. Tajonera

How auspicious to be named
for the goddess
and how wonderful
to have so much power
in a name.

Grey-eyed one,
patron of heroes
and philosophers,
the mother of
the olive
tree.

By your very
name
you hoist a bow
and arrow,
are dressed in royal
robes
and speak with
kings.

The love of your mother
and father
stretch you as an arc,
poising you for
the stars.

I imagine great
things in
your story.

Remember this day
and how you are
cherished.
