Prettier Suns

Mediation

Leo,
drop the pride.

Cancer,
you’re not the only one needing pain relief.

Mars glares at the others
in a cardinal cross
you’ve both been hammered on.

Leo,
it’s only a shell
and the meat is sweet.

Cancer,
it’s just a roar
without teeth.

The sun has Leo,
the moon has Cancer
and would rather not talk about it.

The sun has Leo,
the moon has Cancer
but what’s this ownership about?

It’s about fear.
You should own up to that
and move into love.

The moon eclipses the sun –
not enough to block his burn,
but enough to make him prettier
than he is.

She makes you prettier, Leo,
and you make her beam.
So calm that self-immolating sun.
You haven’t finished this path.
You’ve just begun.
