[inspired by Sunday Scribblings]
There are many types of astrology, I have only passing knowledge of western sun-sign astrology such as found in the daily newspapers, and Chinese astrology, introduced to many of us on our restaurant place-mats.
When I contemplate my luck,
am I lion or a rabbit?
Is my Leo side out front?
or is the Chinese hare my habit?
Horoscopes in newspapers
explain to me my fire sign.
appreciating all things fine.
The noble Leo seeks the stage,
knowing that I'm always right.
Defusing crisis situations
with my creativity and might.
The Rabbit born in water yin
is more a background kind of role,
creating peaceful atmospheres
to block the world out, on the whole.
Water Rabbit loves solitude,
but communication skills are great.
Quiet, reserved, a delicate soul,
confrontation is what I hate.
Both lion and rabbit are excellent hosts.
They appreciate details and the arts.
Luckily, it seems my whole
is greater than the sum of my parts.
