A-Z sketches in verse: Zodiacal Zones’ Unknowns



I do not trace the zodiac.
I do not know my sign.
It’s not that I want money back;
I wait for the divine.

As choices clamor for our eyes,
We focus where we may.
Our hearts do quickly improvise
To give ideas full sway.

The stars may tell a story, true.
For evil or for good.
And though I cannot speak for you,
They’re oft misunderstood.

The future may surprise us all,
Assumptions tossed afield.
No matter what the cosmic scrawl,
The truth will be revealed.

  2. What a gift for rhyme you have, and insightful: "I do not trace the zodiac.
    I do not know my sign.
    It’s not that I want money back;
    I wait for the divine."
