I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Moon and the Stars

The moon moves
through Scorpio
my sun sign,
also my moon sign.

What does this mean? 
No astrologer,
I recall that yesterday
I felt strong and easy.

I picture us 
dancing together
she behind her veils,
me swirling proudly.

By tonight she’ll be
in Sag, my rising sign
and still, most likely,
playing hide-and-seek.
