Treasure Island

David DeSantis

(01/29/85 / Utica, NY)

**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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
