Sea Gypsy - Pisces

I circle and scan the green seas with eagle eyes
I dive at the speed of sound and spear my prey
I swim the shallows, exploring glittering, coral gardens
I nibble mindlessly at an angry, frightened octopus...

I am Pisces
I am the fish
I have returned
I am home...

Beware the Pisces
Fear the Pisces
Pisces is dangerous,
never resting
never stoping
until he knows why...

(Like a sea gypsy, I restlessly wander the shore
searching for something I cannot name
something lost that I will never find
something buried deep beneath cold, dark waters)

    As a student of astrology I don't agree to the last stanza. Pisces are always, sober and well-behaved people in general if not receiving bad aspects from the other evil planets. Tim
