**My Birthday

Another day
as any other.
Yet on this day
I was born.

The Sun shone in Aquarius,
as perhaps I should be happy.
But the moon
she was a Pisces.

And the two-
we never go together.

    Happy Birthday to you David, never worry about the pisces, they are lovely but their fish always swim in opposite directions! Tricky to catch them and keep a hold. ; -) HG xx (Report) Reply

    Happy B-day David! I like your creative astro-logical point of view to your B-day. According to the Greek mythology, Aquarius was 'cup-bearer to the Gods' often painted as a man spilling water, one who can not keep the fishes in the water :)) Funny piece of you, nice to see you writing again.
    Best wishes, one (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
