Listen to poem:
***Heptastich, a poem in 7 lines, syllabic, 2-4-6-8-6-4-2 Greek Goddess I am Aphrodite... yielded from sea lather and reached the shores of Cyprus on a scallop's shell, symbol of womanhood and birth I am Aphrodite... Homer sourced me as a girl by Zeus and sea nymph, Dione, and aphrodisiac had influenced my name I am Aphrodite... a cause and effect for incessant eyes aroused crusade facing our guarded Mount Olympus high above I am Aphrodite... unceasing prayers heard by mere boldness and a taste test from each sweeten apple will direct me to you I am Aphrodite... petitions in the air float endlessly, plucked graciously by ivory doves to be delivered to me I am Aphrodite... where I will recognize you daily upon your first glance into some looking-glass beholding my essence I am Aphrodite... Olympian goddess of love, beauty, procreation also, satisfaction, your every need answered. 2020 July 09 *1st Place* A Contest About a Goddess or God - Not THE God ~~Caren Krutsinger
