Poetry by Jaya Avendel : Dawn


When I was born
Too many stars winked in the sky and
The ocean almost drowned in moons.

I was bornĀ 
Between the twelve houses
Belonging to all the constellations
And none.

I heard a butterfly
Flutter in the night
Watched a raindrop slide down a hemp leaf
Saw a honeybee proudly guarding its hive.

When I was born
The sun was angry
Ready to burn the planets constantly
Pinching him.

I was bornĀ 
To appease him
To gentle his attack on the world
To freeze him.
