One Life Circle Revisited...

'Venus In Retrograde' by Pearldiver, is a poem of hope that explores what it is to try to be in and to maintain a serious relationship when young, when parents and others, have the ability to directly influence the young couple's choices and the course that their relationship takes. This poem was written from the perspective of revisiting that relationship after many years and looking at what had occurred over that time, that had influenced the outcome for the original couple.

The poet uses the illustrative powers of Time, Tide and Venus, to provide an imagery that can realistically apply to all relationships, including those which we, as people promote and share with Nature, her creatures and our souls. This poem, like many others in Pearldiver's Life Circle series is also an allegory, which means that there is an underlying message within the words, which gives the reader a variety of personal interpretations to take from the poetry, rather than solely a singular meaning. This poem could also help us, for example, to understand or appreciate the relationship between the morning star Venus and different lovers, in our lives. I hope that you enjoy the twists and turns of this thought provoking life circle poem, 'Venus in Retrograde.' If so, please take the time to leave a comment at the bottom of the page below. Take care and if it's your Birthday, may it be more special than normal once you have read this piece by New Zealand poet - Pearldiver.

How wastefully sacrificed, one jellyfish stranded above the tide.

Above the Tide a Life Circle Revisited.

'Venus In Retrograde'

Oh how very fast our time has flown

When young, we missed the relevance of ebb tides, didn’t we?

Not knowing how to be fully grown up, or how to adjust, in remedy

Nor really understanding love, or nature, her moon phases, others

Or what it meant to be truly ourselves, or in unity, or to just be


How slowly waned the years of that blindness

As if time stalled and did all to avoid, such painful realizations

Of my youthful inability to speak to you, in truly perfect words

Or to let you know how truly broken they had left me, behind the façade

Nor could I genuinely hear your needs, above loud, remaining fragments of my own

Rather opting to withdraw, above the tide, as seaweed does, silently


How vastly different the world becomes when, angry parents always know best

Influenced by the very inconvenience of young growing needs and change

Not bothering to understand the innate strengths and skills within young souls

Nor what the tides of time could positively deliver to vulnerable, trusting shores

Perhaps far more than castaway, sandy morsels of ill timed, viable opportunities

Held hostage with greatness chained, needing to burst forth, yet ever restrained

Ever judged inane youthful complexity, of apathetic value; who would care so tragically?


Venus in retrograde, influence beyond love’s ability to fulfill its potential

How destructive can be such detached efforts, used to abandon hope

How wastefully sacrificed, the jellyfish caught above the tide

Leaving no positive influence on long lost, apathetic jellyfish offspring

Nor any heartfelt, relevant understanding of it's final stranding, or the cause

Above the tide, to gasp and die unseen, beside bleached seaweed bones, merging into sand

How fast our lives have flown and yet another birthday planned

Decades come and go and now in irony and perfect words; how does one pause?


And how slowly wane my first memories of your eyes

Those deep amber windows shared, with a Grandmother’s timeless soul

Not so complex anymore, as an older Venus moves back, into retrograde

Yet still I'm lost, in that youthful inability, to understand her, as a whole

Over time, so many jellyfish strand as life’s tide withdraws

Seaweed hopes rise and fall, in silent phases of fleeing moons

All castaway sandy morsels lose, their relevance when unseen... alone

Or influenced by nature's storms, or selfish other needs, beyond our own

Your eyes still truly do shine, beyond all greatness found, during my years flown


Venus in retrograde and one life circle revisited, from a time, not of space

Time reaching out to experience, the nourishing glow of her, within a morning star

In any series of life choices made, so many search in vain, for their sandy place

Some lured by a siren's twin souls, that dwell beyond, the transit of your face

All strangely chained, to only watch, maybe appreciate, the irony that we are

As we learn beyond youthful inability to survive in love, with life guidance from afar

Venus in retrograde also demands that we remember, love from days gone by

As most have slowly, waning memories, while life and time now, really fly


So I hope my overdue words have told you, that I've always loved, your perfect eyes

Though in retrograde I fear, that vision will tend to move, far more than morning skies

As Venus chases the tidal moon, he flees and then, it seems, a jellyfish gasps and dies

During all the time that flies and in all the time we are, something in our heart drives us, to reach out for that star

Venus’s presence, her transit inspires far more than lovers, to believe that they can be, all they really are


And as she moves silently past us, some plead for love... while others sigh

But only, dying jellyfish call out her name and wait in hope... for her, to reply! ♥


And for me:

I hope you rise far above the greatness of possibility

Never again be restrained by fools or loveless planes

With my Venus in retrograde no more, now I see

No valid reasons why I should not, just be

Free, with time to free, the deaf, stranded jellyfish again...

♥ By Pearldiver ♥

Beautiful! You inspire me to release the bonds created by uncaring or hurtful people (even if being hurtful wasn't their goal), to not sit and wait for hope, but to stand up and do the best I can on my own - at least that is how I read it. I enjoyed it a lot.

Hi MarleneB, thank you for that. Yes this poem is an allegory and that is indeed one of the prevalent meanings within the poetry. I am really pleased that you picked up on that message and even more so, if my words do inspire you to have the courage to rise above it's possibilities!

Really happy that you took the time to read 'Venus in Retrograde' and to let me know the significance of the poem to you... cheers.. take care.

At the outset, you should know that I'm completely in awe. I consider myself fortunate to be following you, 'cos such sheer talent isn't easy to come by.

Just last night I was thinking about the tussle that results from parental expectations and our own dreams in youth. This poem (I think 'poem' isn't the right word. Masterpiece, perhaps?) gives an insight into that thought with its wonderful imagery and specatacular allegory.

Beautiful really doesn't cut it.

One of the best literary pieces I've read in recent times. Just Wow!!! :)

Hi silverstararrow, what can I say to such a review? I am humbled by your words Sir, thank you for exploring the true depths of this piece and for taking ownership of the pearl you found within the words.

I merely write from the heart, as I see life and our environment. I don't know how else to write as I have never been trained to do so.. therefore I write from my knowledge and experience, passing on what I have learned from far greater sources than a classroom.

I'm genuinely pleased that you enjoyed this work as I also enjoyed constructing the layers within it. Cheers for taking the time to explore this work... take care

Hello Pearldiver, your poem has a nice rythym, a gentle ebb and flow. I hear the sense of wonder at how quickly time moves on, and the inevitable outcome of loss, of innocence, of love unimpeded by guile, thwarted by society's pre-determined outcome. The images are powerful (both the visuals in the poetry and the artwork). Regards, snakeslane

I really loved the way this rolled along, bringing little memories to the fore.

But, my God, I anticipated this poem (but not so eloquently, of course() when, at the age of eleven, or twelve or thirteen or older, I walked along the beaches of the Swan River in Como, Perth, W.A., and thought how those stranded, almost completely transparent, pearly while jellyfish would never complete their life cycles.

What a sensitive boy, I was. What a long meandering sentence I have just written.

Thank you, PG, for food for thought.

Another reading coming up.

Thank you for your presence here Ian and for adding yet another flavor to the mix of meanings within this allegory. Dependent on species, Jellyfish often 'swarm' in huge schools, in a similar manner to arrow squid, for the purpose of completing their life cycle and they only strand during their dying process.

Also depending on species, the 'Genuinely Romantic' Jellyfish are often drawn to the transit of Venus, their Goddess of Love and strand unwittingly while waiting for her to answer their calls of adoration! Jellyfish are of course, ironically, deaf by nature!

I used to always free stranded Jellyfish back to the sea, in those days before I understood their plight and when life was not influenced by the irrelevant needs of sel-fish others. You know what I mean.. the melons!! :)

You take Sir and know that you are very much appreciated throughout the world as a superb poet and wordsmith.. PD

Oh Pearldiver, I must say again what a pleasure and honor it is to have found you here. Your words and expression touches the inner depth of my heart and soul. I gathered so much emotion of a past lived journey with this poem. It reminds me when young love feels of the only love we may ever know; then as we are older; we really never grasp the same feeling again.

Beautiful, simply just beautiful!

lilyfly 4 years ago from Wasilla, Alaska

great, brutal circular beauty... very very good. Oh, it reminds me of something,,,

mercury retrograde

sweet candy tasting kisses

of male virgins

and I was just as bereft of

understanding as they-

hovering around the hive

of the keg,

lost in new sensations;

fast forward mercury,

evn tho your my stumblingblock,

I stumble in greater, smaller dreams now.

having learned the secret of the hive,

I stumble inside myself,

let no living thing see

my unmasked face,

only Kabuki emotions,

painted on

with great difficulty

and time,

about the time it takes

for mercury to transit

then begin it's retrograde

upon itself,

doubling back on a path

it has already travelled

over, and over, and over again.

but, I'm still the doe-eyed fool

hanging around the keg.

Hi Jen, thank you so much for your positive and encouraging comment. I'm pleased that you enjoyed this poem and yes it can certainly be applied to a past life of a poet in reflection, or in fact, the past lives of many.

You have given yet another interpretation of 'Venus in Retrograde' and I thank you for that also... Cheers for taking the time to read my works and appreciate the value and depth of my words.. take care.

Hi Lily, thanks for reading this work and for your compliments. Glad you enjoyed her planetary influence enough to allow her to remind you of Mercury's influence.. nice piece btw...

Although his 'retrograde influence' is of no real consequence to the life choices of Jellyfish, they are well familiar with Kabuki emotions. I hope you have posted your fine effort into its own hub for the world to read. Cheers for your support Lily.. take care

That made so much sense to me I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I ended a relationship with the love of my life because I was "too young" and my parents didn't approve. We know what is in our hearts, age doesn't matter. I am happy and moved on, but always wished I could see him again. Well, actually I did, in a vision, but that's another story..


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Jean, I'm pleased that you have joined the ranks of those who have read this piece.. 'Venus in Retrograde' is also an astrological event which has a major bearing on our love relationships and revisiting of those we have loved... I wrote this piece in that vane and in some respects as a tribute to my own young love and joint experiences... perhaps that sense you saw came from that understanding of young relationships.. 'too young' has always been a cop out, meaningless detachment offered by parents who have little real understanding of the player's hearts... very common.

I'm glad you enjoyed and read the true flow of this poem, able to relate so well... As I intimated within the poem... How old must one be to understand the wonderment of love... how insensitive must one be to not be forced into stranding in a barren place, when love is influenced so? Thank you for such an appropriate comment... I hope the tears are not wasted on a unsatisfied wish... this was a very deep poem.. containing a perfect reason (and planet) to satisfy a wish and quench a heart's yearning perhaps..... PD


Jean Bakula profile image

Jean Bakula 4 years ago from New Jersey

No, the tears were not wasted, they were perhaps an acknowledgement of my younger self. At the time I thought he and I were too much different. But at my current age I realize that was not it at all, we were exactly alike! We were astrological opposites, and they often have similiar traits, they just approach life from a different viewpoint. I believe we were together in another incarnation, because we felt the pull toward each other with so much intensity. I did not study metaphysics yet back then, I was 15. We had our time, and had changed, so by the time I was older, we would not have been able to have a relationship with the level of responsibility and devotion I would hope to have (and give) with my health issues. But I do dislike the "too young" copout, when we are young we have such passions. We have them older too, but they seem more reasoned somehow. Love is love, it's simple!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Jean, that is a really nice reply and shows perfectly the balanced reasoning that often walks us in and out of the sentimental places we need to visit in our journey... time certainly does do more than heal alright Jean.. btw.. you always remain opposites and opposites always think about the opposites they meet in life... that seldom changes... I hope you remember that... you take care and thank you for your positive self... PD

Venus in Retrograde, youth, love, time, stranded Jelly fish (?), very unique and thought provoking piece! It's like a piece of our life, what we go through as we get older! Feels like a dream.....

Passionate and sentimental poem, beautiful!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi LaThing, the reference to jellyfish is actually the twist that makes this poem gel.. one of the several points is: Jellyfish are deaf... they are also mesmerized by a love that drives them and ultimately destroys them, as a result of how not navigating the seas of love properly, strands them on tide that is receding... yet as they lie dying, their love (Venus) passes overhead, they ignore the fact of their death, they merely seek appreciation of their life's love (Venus) calling out to her... waiting for her to reply... but they remain throughout, unable to hear her reply, the very thing that is needed to save their lives... they can't hear her... As they are Deaf!

Perhaps with such an outcome, it would tend to be a nightmare, more than a dream.. from the Jellyfish's perspective! There is far more than that in this poem.. maybe if you now understand the Jellyfish, it will help to understand what happens and why, in a Jellyfish's world and in that way the power of Venus going backwards (retrograde) in its transit, has more relevance to our own lives and loves.


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

Thanks for clarifying the jellyfish story...... But I see that as only a metaphor in the story of young love, lost due to circumstances beyond they reach. Later that emotion of love coming back to one of them, thus Venus In Retrograde, going back...... Reminiscing of past love, yet not being able to grab it! Death of jellyfish is the death of love, not so much of the lovers...... Deaf; not being able to see (hear) the call of the other, ..... And there seem to be more to it.... I don't want to write out your whole story in this comment box :)

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hahaha.... wouldn't buy that one huh? I once had a great friendship with a wild cat.. each night she would come to see me for a meal and clearly for the company, as she would after being fed, walk with me for up to 3 miles every night, only leaving my side to run ahead, so she could ambush me as I walked past. She was completely wild and only I could get near enough to her to touch her... I called her Persistence, as that was what best described her need to reach out, without compromising her need to be feral.. Reminiscing on past loves is one of the greatest things that are able to do.. just the fact that we do.. is as good as it could be actually grabbing it! Perhaps, it was a wild cat that had the need and found another soul with which to share it? You are right, there is a lot more behind the words... and the man that wrote them... Glad you liked them... :) There is a relevance in what I have said... a lateral one!


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

:) I am smiling at your cat story! You are amazing with allegorical points. I guess November born boys love to be mysterious..... Hard to figure them out! But a November girl loves a mystery :) Thanks for awaking my mind late at night, now I am going to stay up and ponder upon the Cat Story! Persistence, hmmm!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Nope I was not trying to be mysterious, allegorical or anything but honest... that is what happened when I was home... if I want fishing, then I shared the company of a 1 legged Oystercatcher bird.. that I called Hoppy.. because he did and left footprints like a bird's foot and a full stop (period).. Every morning in the dark he used to fly down the beach and call out to me in Oystercatcher language, asking if I had any bait to spare... when he knew I was there, he'd come in and land - well.. crash land and then sit with me until after the sun had come up! I shared my bait with him and he just chattered away like he knew me in a previous life.. amazing bird, animals know.. but I don't like moose!


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

ROFL..... LOL, there's no mystery, or allegorical or anything there! It's as plane as it gets!! You are some storyteller, Robby! Hoppy! Hmmm

What's wrong with Moose! There are the great giants of the Northern forests, little slow in the head, but who cares :)

Thanks for the laugh, PD! Take care......


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

I just tell it like it is... I have no reason to embellish the truth and the reason I dislike moose... I don't abide fools well... from my experiences of them.. they are really dumb! Like jellyfish!


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

HAHAHA...... If you could only see me laughing right now!!! Somebody had a bad experience with that poor moose! But jellyfishes know about Venus! can't be too dumb :)

Ok, I need to get out of here, before I get myself in trouble! ;)


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

The point I was making is that jellyfish are dumb for the reason that I made in 'Venus in Retrograde' - because they die waiting for a morning star to care enough for them as to answer their sacrificial declaration of love.. Thanks for understanding.. regards.. PD

Hi Gary, sorry I missed your comment, glad you liked this piece I wrote some time back when feeling a shift in my planets :) Cheers on the 6 years congrats, but I don't understand what you mean by ' A 160-minute early, my time' Sorry... we're a bit slow way down South, or maybe my long hours atm are taking their toll. Ummm, come to think of it, I missed breakfast too! Now... where did I leave my marbles?? Thanks for reading and commenting on my work... I haven't posted here for awhile, most of my newer writing is about to be loaded on a new site I've just about finished building...
