Libra: The Aesthete Of The Star Signs

Lips lustered with Venus-enchantment flirt as the Imagineer steers your swoon to the Moon on a love song.. Beyond oneness with another, the lover and artiste Relishes color in counterpoise to white rising light, and so flows Abstracts across a sunrise canvas to laud a treaty ‘tween night and day Susan Ashley April 8, 2021 *aesthete: a person who has a special appreciation of art and beauty. *imagineer: a person who is skilled in implementing creative ideas into practical form. A Blend of imagine and engineer. Poet’s note: not for a contest but inspired by the “Star Sign Acrostics” poetry contest sponsored by Charlotte Puddifoot..

A Libra here. This piece moved me. Your creation will stay with me today. " And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." - McCartney

Dear Ken, fellow Libran, I relish your comments. Thank you so much for your gracious visit and precious thoughts. I'm thrilled you enjoyed my poem and I was so thrilled by the McCartney quote; it's been a favorite of mine since I was a girl hearing The End all those decades ago, puzzling out the meaning of this cosmic couplet.. it was truly a beautiful and meaningful end to an era. Please accept my apologies for my late reply. Warmest wishes, my friend.. ~Susan

this is fantastic, and I bet it could have won if entered! I have Libra Ascending in my chart and Libra for one of my planets as well as virgo, Aries and Taurus. I think my Libra friends are so awesome for their communication skills.

Dear Andrea, thank you for your encouraging and uplifting comments. Too bad I didn't notice the contest till it was too late to enter. By the time I was done with this the contest was closed.. oh well.. at least I was inspired to write in this form (my 1st acrostic poem) and enjoyed the challenge of it. Being under the influence of Libra, it's no wonder you possess such grand poetic artistry, my friend. Librans gift of gab definitely lends itself to their enhanced communication skills! :)) Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

This is such an amazing acrostic Susan. Libras indeed hold art in the palm of their hands and in the gaze of their eyes. What a lovey Libra you are. Blessings xxoo

This poem is so awesome, it has depth of meaning besides the actual words which describe a Libra! Your fertile imagination is expressed and portrayed so evenly. Sorry you missed the contest, it would have been a winner. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Susan, this is a wonderful poem. I especially loved "Imagineer steers your swoon to the moon." Yes, the jewels of the sky which sparkle with your imagination. I'll bet you could write similar poems of all of the zodiac signs... a star collection!

Being an aesthete, I am lucky to appreciate the beauty of this short poem, Susan. It is not the significance of the star sign itself which I find most attractive, but the way in which it is expressed. ~ Hope you're keeping well, my friend. Warm regards & Hugs // paul

Oh my ! You and I share the same sign. "Lips lustered with Venus-enchantment, the lover will swoon" This statement is beautiful and breathtaking, all at the same time. Having an "appreciation for art and beauty" Yes, beyond words can express. You have created a Masterpiece my dear sweet friend. Your poetry shines and I am standing in your light. :) Many wonderful blessings to you. :) Brandy

Pisces, a water sign, is the last constellation of the zodiac. It's symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces's attention between fantasy and reality. Fits me well. as I am constantly pulled from reality into fantasy realms in my writings, my new creations. God bless..

My dear friend, your star sign does indeed reflect your artistry and actuality.. isn't it funny that though a lot of people dismiss them though our signs can really be quite accurate..? Your lovely thoughts are ever cherished, Robert. Warmest wishes..
