Poem © 2016 by Joyce Mason

My mom's Aries Moon:
Fierce, protective
rib-crunching hugs
teamed with Venus in Scorpio,
a magnetic undertow of smother love.

I see mirrored in my cat’s eyes:
fiery love and fear of loss,
hot temper,
the craving and no-thank-you’s,
the Eternal Mother’s Day
of intense nurturing
big as all outdoors--
my heart strings wrapped
around the universe
defending the realm.
