Father’s Day. June 18th, 2017

 

Let’s hear it for our awesome dads!

Traditionally, the family’s unsung heroes.

Some reassigned, new gender as sheroes.

 

Some denigrated for their arm-waving ‘dad dancing’

prompted by magical memories: youthful romancing.

Some harshly relegated, downgraded by post-modern society;

Fortunately, fatherhood’s joy promotes responsible sobriety.

 

Oh Father. Fatherly, hidden figures.

Some present; some absent

gone away somewhere.

Alas some, gone too soon.

 

Thank you awesome dads

for your enduring Faith, Hope and Love.

For your giant, baby steps on the moon.

Retrograde Mercury Taurus

 

Repairs and alterations: another zodiac test?

Re-blurring cerulean blues; olive-branch greens

Reshuffling cosmic cards with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Reminding us gently: Look up from addictive screens!

Revere instead, your mind body green.

Replenishing with juices; clean and serene.

Releasing resentments; restoring the equilibrium

whilst you were sleeping in Seattle; no sleep til Tulum

with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Rediscover the Beatles acoustic melodies;

Reverberate Beach Boys happy harmonies.

Reignite jasmine aromas; flowering rescue remedies.

Recycling green plastic bottles; renewable sunscreens

with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Reconnecting your head with your heart

Reel in, real slow an organic apple-cart

[Living life on the veg]

Revisit local-sourced farmer marks;

Replace fast-food junk, processed marts

with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Re-practise alfresco, green goddess asanas,

Re-fueling your body; fair-traded bananas

Retox and detox. Relentless technology!

Re-book massages; re-prioritise reflexology

Retreating; relaxing with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Re: “Ain’t no particular sign we’re more compatible with?”

Venus in Pisces? Go with the flow.

Retrograde Mercury in Taurus?  Go with the slow.

Deep. Breaths

Fire signs. What’s your fast and furious, relentless hurry?

Re-sample slow-cooked Taurean; gourmet, epicurean curry.

 

Reconsider the snail’s…pace. Slow and steady wins this retro race.

Be more tortoise than harried hare. Smell the roses. Stop and stare.

Pause for YOUR cause. No rhyme, no reason; just ’cause it’s retro season

with slow. Deep. Breaths.

 

Alas sometimes, you’ll wanna scream! Til you can scream no more.

Resolved to shut down paths beckoning no more?

Ready to release some pain embedded DEEP in your core? Wanna

Reprise the slow-dance shag on the bodouir floor

but this time babe: with slower. DEEPER. Breaths…

 

Reacquainted with Bluebella, anyone? Essensually, redefining pleasure.

Relish every olive-oiled inch; energetic potential, heavenly treasure.

Rejoice for peek-a-boo glimpses of sensuous skin.  Tattooed with temptation; and

reeking of sin.

Reclusive mistress; softly subtle. Refined divine, gestures totally non-verbal.

Reminiscing your fragrant tuberose; plucked from Eden’s garden herbal?

Relished every moment babe; refined movement with slow. Deep Breaths.

 

Release, release the emerald-eyed monster;

Retracted, latent in your recycled upholster.

Release the tight grippage; quivering revolver!

Relent, relent: oh you wounded healer!

Repent, repent: to the great Absolver

on your knees with slow. Deep. Breaths.

This ode relates to the planet of love and values ,Venus.

Approximately every 18 months, Venus appears from earth to reverse its motion in the heavens. An astrological phenomenon known as a “retrograde”. This time around, Venus retrogrades firstly, in the sign of Aries [March 4th/5th, 2017] depending on your local time zone. A remarkable time of “me, myself and I”. Thus, straining all relationships – platonic/romantic; business/professional etc.

Venus reverses into Pisces [April 2nd/3rd] restoring much needed peace and harmony!

Venus finally resumes forward (direct) motion from April 15/16th in the peaceful sign of Pisces.

Just in time for Easter 2017 which falls on April 16/17th [sweet relief]

and eventually re-entering warrior Aries, 29th/30th April 2017.

 

Retrograde Venus

Why do you tease us?

 

Deflating, tainting Love

unlike the

Redeemer Jaysus.

 

Forty days, forty nights

Just where did our Love go?

Wrecking spicy pillow talk

Inflaming petty cat-fights.

 

Retrograde Venus

Why, won’t you appease us?

 

Where is the Love

Jupiter-Libra promised so far?

Retreated from view;

Oh, vanquished, vanishing Evening star.

 

Venusian Aries: from today, it’s America first?

Yikes! Insatiable appetite; unquenchable thirst!

 

Refrain:

Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

Was the cosmic plan to be in cahoots

with

Retrograde Jupiter in Libra’s jump-suit

 

Parading pussy hats; laced-up

Red or Dead, Doc Marten boots?

 

Refrain: Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

Retrograde Venus

Love gets fierce in warrior Aries

Alex McQ, Viv Westwood, anyone?

Slurping too many bloody Mary’s.

 

Alas, Arian pride before Venus’s detrimental fall.

How ’bout we make love; not nuclear war?

Let’s knock-down; demolish Tex-Mex walls!

 

Refrain: Your mantra always: me, myself and I.

You shed no tears; even when doves cry.

 

 

Then the sweetest relief when Venus

reverses into ethereal, peaceful Pisces

restoration time; picking up the pieces

of Love’s cosmic jigsaw puzzle.

 

Love changes everything

dreamily in La La land.

 

Oh Retrograde Venus

Won’t you please reappear as Morning star

Rejoice for Love retrograded way too far!

An Ode for St. Valentine’s Day 2017

 

“St. Valentine:

What our world needs now?

Is Love, sweet Love.

 

Your Love, my Love. All you need is Love. One Love.

Love is in the air. Heaven sent,

down to earth on the wings of doves.

 

To the spy who Loved me. From Russia, with Love?

Wired and tired? Pushed and shoved?

 

St Valentine:

Bring your presence more than presents;

Bring your smile more than ‘gifs’ and gifts.

Bring your heart and mind; eyes wide open

Unnecessary words needs not be spoken.

 

For your alluring, enchanting Love tokens:

Chocolatey cards, edible flowers, divine wine

 

’cause St.Valentine:

What our world needs now?

Is Love, sweet Love.

To celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Rooster,

January 28th, 2017 thru’ February 16th, 2018.

 

Welcome home Chinese Fire Rooster!

For jaded Earthlings; a libidinous boost.

Feathering nests; ruling the *[hygge/koselig]* roost.

 

Louder and prouder than Leonine peacocks

Early riser, competes with your alarm clock.

 

Unruly awakener! Heralding the dawn chorus.

Provoking Chicagoan Bulls’ horns. Awakening languid Taurus.

 

Electrifies quirky, egg-centric Aquarians

Breathing new life into cynical humanitarians.

 

’cause Rooster’s worst nightmare? Hemmed in the coop!

Seasoned as a Sunday roast OR soul-less chicken soup.

 

Oriental protector: geek chicks; organic free-range hens.

Fired-up! Roaming Sagittarian fields, every now and again.

 

[Breaking news…]

Gonna be a year of w.t.f. What the Dickens?

Queen Bey giving birth to twin chickens!! […ends]

 

Chinese Fire Rooster:

Cocksure and raucous just like the Rolling Stones

Wants your total mind-body; caramelised love bones.

 

Wears pinstriped corsets, revealing hipster jeans

Fancies Joan Jett ‘gainst the jukebox, by any means…

 

Swaggers and struts; Harlem reshuffles.

Pecks and preens; dress-shirt ruffles.

 

Walks the walk and talks the “squawk”

Cock-a-hoop protester at the #women’s march

From downtown Sydney to upstate New York.

 

Red Indian headgear amok the Aries warpath

“Doesn’t count chickens” until the aftermath

 

Of Mercury, Venusian, Jupiter-Libran retrogrades

Severely testing relationships. Neptunian escapades.

 

For what strangest feet? Clawing Virgoan Earth.

“Rooster Booster” marking territory; marking turf [$]

 

Don’t leave Rooster headless in the heat of the night

Flapping ruffled feathers. Morning glory not pretty sight!

 

Hands off rustlers! Curated eggs aflame

Or be shot down just like Jesse James.
