In the Stars

star seed

I am Capricorn,
the sign of the goat.
Stubborn, hairy, smells bad?
Not very auspicious.

Born in the Year of the Rat.
Twitchy, gnawing,
no sense of fine cuisine?

My tarot card is The Devil.
Need I say more about that one?

“You are a star seed,” said the psychic.
“A star feed?”
“Yes, a star seed. Didn’t you know?”
No, no I didn’t. I’ll have to look that up.
Star feed…

I was born on the fourth of the month.
Compassionate, nature-loving, highly ethical.
Okay, a little boring, but I like it much better than
goats, rats and devils.

Zodiac, Chinese calendars, Tarot,
feeding stars…

I think I’ll take up numerology.

NaPoWriMo Challenge, Day 27:  pick a card (any card) from [an] online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.
