    An O riginal thinker

    I keep rising with
    the AIR - sign

    navigating
    my solar powered wings
    over a 7 day forecast

    Watching out of observation windows
    from a 12 story complex
    I saw my lucky numbers
    playing tic-tac-toe
    with my daughter
    and my dauhter won
    ...guess I ain't so lucky after all...

    On Friday
    I considered myself fortunate
    that my old man
    didn't find out about
    the Financial Affair I'd been
    having with Dow Jones~
    a man whose variables
    had been successful
    at misleading the
    unpredictable side of me

    A twelve story complex ...
    Or are they charted as
    12 'houses'
    rented on the horizon
    of doubled hours
    with the Zodiac
    as my landlord
    guarding
    a prolifc project or
    an ascendant's tenement

    And they say time waits for ............ ??

    Natural wheel turning
    due east; counter clockwise
    stops on communication trails --
    Flashing neon (light) life (signs) sighs
    reads Open For 24 Hour A(xis)cess
    providing regular consumers with
    free drinks of 'individuality'
    as long as you don't get full of yourself...

    I wear adaptive mood rings
    that change the
    color of Mercury to match
    an October birth stone
    standing as Osirus
    the sun is Set
    and from the opposite
    a double iris' sat at the
    base of uneven scales
    to be balanced by the
    hot tempered reflection
    emitted from
    the coolness of
    Amber stones
    in my eyes

    With common (sense) of direction
    I take refuge in daydreaming
    and booking flights of fancy
    on air lined impressions

    There are still
    12 houses to visit
    on 10 different planets
    I keep reading each page
    and slowly
    turning to the next
    as if I had an appointment
    that was made
    to be kept
    in another life

    I never made it to the after life--
    in my past life

    Jupiter ... held me hostage
    He said that
    my ransom was knowledge
    - but spirituality set me free
    then I counted my
    lucky stars and thanked them
    one by one

    Astrology leaves me empty
    all my energies disbursed
    to each their four directions

    Water flows freely
    until ... **** ...

    A river never returns to
    its Original source
    but I'm patient so I'll wait
    for it to take me wherever it's going...

    The search for higher learning steered me
    to my destination -- as if we had
    shared something in common
    maybe we did?
    ... Could it have been
    Destiny?

    I had a tasteless lunch on Venus
    with my good friend Aphrodite
    ...she was sweet and self indulgent

    but, I don't eat sweets

    So I should have said good-bye
    to her before we placed our orders...

    I thank the heavens
    that the moon is not
    jealous in her luminescence

    In the 40 odd seconds it takes
    for my eyes to adjust
    to the moonlight
    after the lights go out
    I've satisfied an elusive
    phenomenon -- LOVE.

    And no one ever bothered
    to tell me that abstraction
    glows in the dark
    or was it clairvoyance's
    night light?

    Confessing to a congregation
    of constellations they are
    all judging my character
    listening to my testimony
    centered in the skies
    of compassion
    below the sun's apparent
    path of righteousness

    They come together collectively
    gathered round to hear the
    sounds of harmony and
    from my soul I speak the
    confessions
    of
    a
    Libra
