Saturday Poem

Mineral Animal Vegetable

You're September
I'm July
Can Virgo ruled by Mercury
Pair successfully
With a Moon influenced Crab?
The Chinese say
You are the Horse
And I the Rooster
Does such a match bode well
This being the Year of the Snake?
To the ancient Celts
We are trees
You the Weeping Willow and I the Fir
In what sort of forest
Would it be likely
We'd be happily rooted
Side by side?
I'm of a mind
To shed these trappings
Imposed on us
By the arbitrary numbers
Describing the timing
Of our births
And focus instead
On the miracle
That any two of us
Meet and bond at all
