Full Moon, Full Me

Lyme and a Coconut

One day I won’t dread the full moon.

One day I’ll look up and gaze

at what ought to bring wonder

and celestial inspiration

rather than another night

alone in bed, head under a cool cloth

and legs being stretched like

sadistic taffy – the kind that sticks

and convinces you you’ll never

make it through this one.

Except you do

and another month passes

another moon comes

and, again, you simply wish

to see its beauty

and nothing else.


I just wrote that on the fly after last night’s pain and today’s realization that the full moon won’t ALWAYS have this negative hold on my body. My stem cell treatment will retrain my immune system to correctly and better fight those Lyme spirochetes so I become someone in remission, not in active daily pain and illness.

I look forward to chasing after the moon again, like a child…

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
