I'm a Cancer

C hrist centered without Him I’m lost
A dventure seeking boredom has a high cost
N ature lovin’ tree huggin’ kind a girl
C reatively inspired I’ll give most things a whirl
E ver evolving stagnation kills
R ichly blessed and keeping it real

    Awesome acrostic an so true to Cancer traits. I love the line " A dventure seeking boredom has a high cost" I can really relate to that and I, myself, am a Virgo-Libra born on the cusp, actually on the switch day. So many of the traits held by one sign can be carried by many signs yet each carries them differently. Great luck to you in the contest. Smiles from Lolita

    You have captured the essence of the astrological sign we share, Laure. We surely do love nature, seek adventure, have deep faith and a creative edge. Wonderful entry for the contest! Love, Carolyn

    My "SUN" is Cancer, Laurie. And believe me, I know what you mean with:"Adventure seeking boredom has a high cost". My daughter is always bored, and I hve to pay the consequences: dancing, cooking, shopping, listening to horrible music, watching the worst movies ever, etc....But, you know...I love her so much...By the way, great acrostic! Ruben.
