Over Heard Conversation

Over heard conversation today.
As I was sweeping leaves that way.
And he's talking to one of his friends.
I heard his words flowing my way.

I hear him say ~ "and she says to me".
I seen that,  where did you get it?   
Now I know , I'm moving out from you.
He says,  well, I really don't give a # % .

That's when the tape recorder starts in 
my head.

Aries is in the midnight skies now.
So be careful of what you say.
Make sure your words don't cut deep.
For the words you speak, will surely be 
the karma you keep.

I thought to myself, boy, am I glad, I don't 
speak off the cuff.
Make sure you speak softly when Aries is 
in the midnight skies.
Aries is a war sign, did you not know ?   

5/ 2010  Yes,  I did hear him telling some other guy this about his g-friend. She left with the baby. It seems Aries is again in the skies now as well : kim jung un  .

    Interesting work..Don't know about what the signs in the sky mean but do know if you give out bad to a person it will usually come back to give bad to you..Enjoyed reading this afternoon..Also, woman are designed to be multipliers..If you give her some money to buy groceries, she will prepare you many meals..If you give her love, she will give it back fourfold..If you give her a house, she will make it a home..If you give her discord, negative words, abuse,etc. she will give you hades..Sara

    Interesting! The way you worded this was so captivating. I can't help but gawk at people as well... somethings heard can't be un-heard. But I think Duke Beaufort said it best.

    Debbie, there is a story where a person who is always hurting people is instructed by a counselor to take a feather pillow to the mountain top and scatter all the feathers. Then he is instructed to go back to the mountain the following day and collect all the feathers which he (of course) can not do. The wise say that the words are like the feathers from a pillow. Once they are out in the air, they can not be taken back. In any case, I thank you for your kindness as always. Be well.

    so eerie I never think of the stars in this context but it is so true we often speak words we can never take back. We would all be well served to heed this glad I stopped by. Incidentally I am in Hawaii and we have hd threats before from this leader. We can only pray his missile hits short and sunk to the ocean depths and not on our small vulnerable islands. SuZ

    Borrowed trouble costs too much. :) It's better you should own. Then when your yard is all cleaned up, you shouldn't need a loan. :) I'm an Aries by the way. But it's alright, have a nice day. :)

    Very nice poem. Aries is definitely a war sign. My mother is an Aries and she's been a warrior all through her life. Like this piece! -- Sean

    this is very interesting. I didn't know this thing about Aries moon. I like that part of the poem because I really dig astrological stuff. Cool!
