A Perfect World To Begin Again

Orion rises forever opposite Scorpio's descent

Bright against Lake Powell's night sky

We watch without knowing

the ancient tales

of death, love and separation.

Artemis, dare you kill the mighty Orion?

Your lover for eternity, brought down in one version by your bow,

and in another version by Scorpion's poisonous sting.

Orion's Belt

Source

Orion walked on water

Before Jesus of Nazareth,

A second coming

Orion's door opens

and beckons us to pass through.

Three bright stars:

The Father

The Son and

The Holy Ghost

The Age of Pisces, your birth sign

battles mine of Scorpio

and in between is Orion's Belt and epic tales of War.

I ran away and back again

into your arms

You held me close

Poetry in motion

This life we have shared

Two beautiful children

Adorable girl

Adorable boy

A perfect union

In a perfect make believe world

Where broken seashells lay hidden in the sand

You took my hand

And sheltered me

On the Scuba Cat in the Similan Islands, Thailand

and beckoned me to be...

To be loved

To believe

To be happy

And to write this song

Save everything and nothing

Because in truth

Nothing is perfect

Except for this moment


Right here
Right now
On this boat

Beside you

My guardian angel and best friend

To begin again

And never

End

Happy to be back. I have spent the past few hours reading your beautiful poems and thoughtful responses from so many of your wonderful fellow hubmates. I especially felt a strong kinship with one lady who I believe just turned 80. Looking forward to reading her hubs. What a wonderful way to begin today. Thanks for stopping by and reading my birthday presnt to Angel #1 (my husband). He will be celebrating his 52nd birthday on the 25th. Pisces and Scorpio. Ouch!

Hi PD,

Not sure if you'll get this message, but I just rewrote the beginning of this poem. The first version was too flat in the beginning....kept the rest of it starting with "I ran away" the same. Hope you are well.
