Sagittarius – A Poem

Image by the author

Sagittarius, the wandering archer

Always waiting on the next departure

A restless soul with a curious mind

Happiness is to live unconfined

Ever on the hunt, you like to explore

Expansive Jupiter leaves you yearning for more

King of the Gods, lightning and thunder

Beware of excess that may tear you asunder

Don’t worry Sagittarius; you have little to fear

You make friends quickly, and you hold them dear

Your inner fire radiates optimism

You don’t have much time for cynicism

Scorpio – A Poem

Image by the author

You’re deep and magnetic

Seductive, yet enigmatic

You are a mystery to most

Except to those you keep close

Pluto is the planet that reigns over you

He may be small, but he’s powerful too

He is the destroyer and the creator

You’re a taboo breaker and vindicator

Scorpio, your passion is undeniable

And your will is unstoppable

If you don’t let them consume you

You can make your dreams come true!

Flash – A Poem

A lightning strike tore me asunder

A glimpse of nature’s violence

The calm pierced by a jagged light

It only lasted a moment

But the breath caught in my lungs

As if I thought it struck me

But no, it struck my favourite tree

The ancient oak sparked into flame

In one moment, things could never be the same

I stared in disbelief as the flames bloomed

Like a savage plant that winds its glowing tendrils

Around the host that sustains it, the tree chokes

I see my past go up in flames

The girl that once sat under it, disappearing in the smoke

She was me, and now she is no more.

Virgo

Image by the author

You like the little things that most people ignore

You like organising your life and your mind

You do life with zest even when it’s a chore

Ruled by Mercury, you’re hard-working and kind

You have a lot of great qualities on your side,

Yet you worry about yourself and others

Concern is good, but take it in your stride

Don’t let your anxiety put you in the gutters

Virgo, you are a careful and diligent soul

And you have a tender and loving heart

You’re the one who keep things under control

Even when the world around you is falling apart

Written by Miss Wren

Leo

Image by the author

Ruled by the Sun, your light touches all

Your optimism turns doubters to your side

Like the mighty lion of the savannah

You like to keep a close eye on your pride!

Your friends and family are everything to you

Your love and generosity keep them close

Don’t let your ego overshadow them

As they might not be there when you hit your lows

Leo, you are the sign that’s larger than life

And you are as radiant as the summer sun

Your shining charisma brings life to the party

You’re dazzling, confident and full of fun!

Written by Miss Wren

Gemini

Image by the author

Light, dazzling and full of fun

You’re the one dancing when everyone’s done!

Your childlike zeal is a feat to behold

Even when you’re grey and old.

But Gemini’s spirit is forever young

Your mind is bright like the morning sun

Witty, sharp and a keen learner too

An eternal student, intrigued by anything new!

You’re a keen observer of the human condition

Making connections with others is a noble mission

Mercury has bestowed you with a curious mind

You’re sociable, astute, funny and kind

Written by Miss Wren

Aries – A Poem

Image by the author

You blaze a trail across the stars

You have the fighting spirit of Mars

You’re passionate and have a zest for life

You see light where others see strife

Oh Aries! What a delight you are!

You are a fearless superstar!

You’re loyal and honest as the day is long

You protect the weak and challenge the strong

First across the line, the herald of spring

The trees blossom and the birds sing

You charge headfirst into the year

As we watch you run without fear!

Chrysalis

Image by the author

I hid myself away

In a covering of silk

So soft, so warm, so peaceful

I slip inside myself

Only to realise

I don’t know who I was

Or who I’m meant to be

It’s easy to lose myself

In the cocoon of familiarity

My body breaks down

And rearranges itself

In deep discomfort

Who am I becoming?

Why does it hurt?

Where is the light?

Do I have to break myself down?

Before I can be rebuilt anew?

My tangled limbs thrash against the walls

My body quivers like a new-born

I kick out and the light streams in

I’ve broken through, my leg dangling

I push again to pull myself out

Gasping for air as I shiver

I climb atop the chrysalis

Breath caught in my lungs

Overcome by the fresh air

I pause to see my body transformed

I had to be broken into a thousand pieces

Before I could put myself back together

I’ll never go back to who I was before

I hope I’ll stay this way forever

My Imaginary Escapade


Photo by Abby Kihano from Pexels

One thousand ideas circle around my head

Dazzling like a swarm of fireflies

They weave through the air, fast and slow

They dim and they glow

Like stars that twinkle in the inky sky above

As above, so below

Heaven and Earth aren’t so different now

Inspiration is all around

I need not catch the fireflies

Let them dance their lazy dance

While I admire them, before sinking back

Into a place of comfort

Curled up among my cushions

Drinking my steaming green tea

From my favourite china mug

Written by Miss Wren

Imagination – A Poem


Photo by Sourav Mishra from Pexels

I slip between worlds

Veiled by a blank stare

And eyes that glean like moonstone

I’m not where you think I am

I am inside myself

Sinking deeper and deeper

And yet, rising somewhere higher

This place doesn’t abide by gravity

It changes on a whim

This place is inside my mind

The rush is palpable

As neurons fire, the pulse racing

To create worlds within worlds

Right here inside my mind

Written by Miss Wren
