Poem for Totally Optional Prompts


Totally Optional Prompts posts: Check out your horoscope and write a poem in response to it.


Natal Chart

A dry moat
Circles her houses
Family. money and love

Earth, fire and wind
Feelings are flares
Without tears

No water for mud
No water for steam
No water for flow

She seeks lakes
creeks and ponds
for a moat born dry
