- (Birthday Poem #5) To a Libra


My Dear Libra,


When at your best you are:

Urbane and Diplomatic
Charming and Romantic
Easygoing and sociable
Idealistic and peaceable

And

When at your worst you are:

Indecisive and changeable
Gullible and easily influenced
Flirtatious and self-indulgent

You have elegance charm and good taste.
Naturally kind very gentle and lover of beauty
and harmony.
You never pretend to be chaste.
You possess a good critical faculty
the way you look impartially at matters
when such treatment is required
on the whole, we think it’s evident,
you’re well-balanced and of even-temperament

However sometimes you surprise us with
frivolity, shallowness
even flirtatiousness
easygoing to the point of letting go… maybe too easily?
growing restless with routine, indecisive, non-committal,
sometimes colorlessly conventional
you show impatience for criticism and greed for approval.
You’re a great ‘gossiper-in-the-making’… No?
The inquiring mind that wants to know
about all the little scandals
in its social circle?

But By understanding others point of view
resolving differences by compromise
you are without a doubt life’s diplomat
(albeit poor party politician)
a most treasured empathic companion
with an innate optimism spreading contagion.
And Since you like to share in the finer things in life
Be convivial with your friends on this occasion
Forget the ‘devil-may-care’ attitude because we do,
we care very much for you.

Best wishes on your birthday!

    What about a Libra with Aquarious ascendent, chinese sign rat, named Carina for its Italian meaning, but registred as the Russians spell it, Brazilian Born, American living, woman's body and heart, by God's eyes a human soul, if animal by choice a Seagull, if free to rest a passanger?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
