MOON IN PASSIONATE SCORPIO

 by Lelawattee Manoo-Rahming

Moon in passionate Scorpio

sets early revealing Venus

aloft in the western sky

 

Lilac light haloes

the eve of the longest night

passion’s sextiled by Mars

in Virgo precision squared

Red Planet presiding

over passionate perfection

 

Transformation is possible

the astrologers predict

salty waves transmute

sharp coral boulders

into soft powder sands

seascaping honeymoon beaches

where lovers glow pink
