I go where mountain streams converge And stand with pitcher on the verge Of a transparent tranquil pool Where waters merge lucent and cool There is the grass sparkling with dew I dip the jar in aqua blue It overflows its precious gift As with both hands I gently lift To raise the contents to my lips So that I take the first few sips And then I drink the rest in haste There is ambrosia in the taste That brings to mind my faithful muse The sky is filled with scarlet hues I am entranced and stay until The sun goes up; once more I fill The jar with water to the brim On wings of time I fly and skim Till I arrive at heaven’s gates Then walk to where my master waits The zodiac path is where he lives He lays the rules and ever gives To freedom lovers ample space To go about at their own pace And cure the fragile human race To make the world a better place. A water bearer I shall be With care to serve eternally. ------------------------------------------- Author: Paul Callus ~ 13th July 2014 Contest: Zodiac Sign Sponsor: Leonora Galinta Placing: 1st

Hi Thvia! Thank you for stopping by with your lovely comments. I wonder how Scorpio and Aquarius relate to each other; I have a feeling they can both be stubborn! // paul

Donnez-moi une vere de votre l'eau, mon ami. A remarkable poem about the water bearer. You and my late husband share the same astrological sign. Your poem has brilliant imagery. Aquarians are also know for their intelligence and leadership qualities. These are yours as well. Wishing you success in the contest, dear friend. Love and blessings, carolyn

Water explains this sign's nature of nourishing the earth with its life giving energies. Like its solid state, ice; and gaseous state, steam (water vapor) Aquarius has many admirable qualities it is able to morph into when needed. Your poem expresses this in the most lovely poetic manner. A most beautiful expression any Aquarius would want to keep. I have my rising in Aq. as does my husband and it helps us relate to each other. Bravo Paul! I loved this!

- Aquarius stands for independence and intellect - symbolizes freedom, revolution, originality, otherness and openness ...... yes, it fits well! - Beautifully written a winning poem in Leonora's contest :) - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

wowowow, this is probably the best zodiac poem I've read yet because it really captures the essence of your sign. It IS your sign, isn't it? I am earth girl (my poem was an oldie that I entered in this contest, a sonnet called Earth's Daughter) Anyway, I noticed in my life that I never really had a real friendship with an Aquarius. the men of that sign never gravitated toward me either. They are quite different from Virgos, but they ARE the sign of the age of love and peace!
