Carpe Diem: Taurus

Carpe Diem


Taurus surrounds me
my wife, my daughter, my ex
the stars challenge me

The stars challenge me
if the moons line up I'm dead 
pre menstrual nightmares

Pre menstrual nightmares
I can run but cannot hide
purchasing safety

Purchasing safety
shopping soothes the savage beast
Taurus surrounds me

  6. I, romantic taurus that I am, tested the waters twice with leos, being forewared that Taurus and Leo does not mix and ended both in bitter divorces so cannot relate to your haiku and shopping....lol Shopping does soothe the pain.

  10. Sam & Friends, supposedly i am Aries (and that ryhmes with "Scary :s"). I have a possible Carpe Diem Solution, if you have any time for my "brand of response" to your very great poetry...Have you ever listened to Mat Boggs?

    He is "Cracking the Man Code" for women 'expert' (and men will like him, as well!).

    Find more of his wisdom on You Tube:) for single folks (yet married and any type of monogamous couple can appreciate his "suggestions" to renew their true love:)
    http://youtu.be/0bcEqesnOQo

    I couldn't find his Part 2 of that series...which I've seen before! I found that Mat mentions what was on that Part 2 in his Vimeo presentation #3...yet this time, he speaks as a married man!! (YouTube videos are mostly when Mat was engaged. It's interesting though to track his advice, and either way, he has helpful suggestions for what works in regard to the most intimate of relationships--some advice is helpful for any level of intimacy (i've a new appreciation for my sons' brains!!) Hope you can see my genie's happy laugh in these "explosions" on your wallpaper, here!!

    Vimeo...and these are all free!! I think there's 69 videos!!

    Sam...the mushroom clouds of this wallpaper WERE scary, until... in looking closer: see HOW the middle bulge of 'smoke' is LAUGHING, with the 'puff clouds' on either side, forming a show of bicep, win-win, strength by each raised arm!! Hey, a genie-like body,

    or like Popeye's strong bod... after eating spinach. Do Canadians know about ol' Popeye cartoons and Aladdin's Disney movie?
