Unorthodox, this water- bearer rules, an Aquarian god moody yet calm in the face of persistent winds…his pail of wine gushing on mouths of February streams, like an outpour into first night’s cycle of unpredictable moves, reigning like a prince-in-waiting, this heir from brazen garnet stars: Oh, his vision is light years ahead of time; breaking from clasps of tradition, his maverick streaks defy life's norms and while he dives into a crest of independence, fool he is for needing warmth and affection. Yet,a blend of hermit's pride and gentleness dares the element of air to brew a storm, then romances the lusty sea of love in a flash... pray tell, how can one define a mystery? ------------ Brian Strand's Contest No 214

I love the contrasts you drew within the water bearer; proud and gentle, daring and romantic. Think you have another winner.

One defines a Mystery by living it Nette. Your beautiful poetry is mystetious and awfully stellar! Perhaps he is not a fool, rather a desperate Legend. I quote the entire poem in admiration. I love the tempestuous maverick attitude. A FAV. J.A.B.

Nette, what a beautifully descriptive poem about the Aquarian water bearer. Well done, your words flowed onto the page as his water from the pail.
