The greatest tent with its sparkling light,
the ultimate show of all tonight.
Bears, Scorpions, Bulls, Lions and Crab,
are some of the creatures on the twinkling map.
Aquarians, Librans and Gemini in the air,
while Sagittarians shoot those arrows fair.
Wandering giants of Saturn and Jupiter so slow,
taking eons to proof that determined grow.
Glittering Venus pasturing with a gentle whip,
keeping marsion wild beasts on narrow bolder wit.
Simulated danger in the Lions toothless mouth,
rolling drums get the senses aroused.
The funny distraction from Mercury’s to and fro,
laughter from a drama slapstick show.
Mysterious shadows turn to acrobatic skills,
when luminous hand and feet the darkness fills.
The trapeze of turning light in swing,
flying glittering Asteroids holding the ring.
Delphinus and Heraclites dancing the waltz of time,
juggling and balancing another new Moon frame.
Thousand astrologers as master of ceremony,
hailing the act of bend and change in that century.
When all planets cue up a conjunction,
centrifugal gravity by Carousel labor love function.
If then you heart is filled by some magic troubadour,
dreaming the ‘Gypsy’ in the ropes is the part for sure.
Falling back through the abyss of a huge astrolabe,
in speed of light a timeless flied takes shape.
A chariot with 7 horses is the conjunction of the soul,
virtual reflections inviting, from my face washing bowl.
