Sky High

Where should I safe sanctuary find When the world outside appears unkind? Others may find solace in prayer, But peace for me must come elsewhere, And some may keep in touch with friends, But that on having some depends! My efforts to avoid life's scars Gives me a life among the stars, I have for years studied the art Of reading from an astral chart - I have no interest in romances, Those in love must take their chances, I prefer the star-crossed clashes Of shipwrecks and plane crashes: And from the political scene One may some astral interest glean: Should one use it for detection In America's election, One might predict that its new boss Has Jupiter his path across, Not that good fortune can be sworn From Jupiter in Capricorn! Those who write detective series In turn alert astral queries: One will soon find their heroes' traits Will correspond to their birth dates;* My life is lived in isolation, With heaven's map as consolation, Poetry, too, gives satisfaction As a personal distraction. *Those of the authors - i.e. no astrologer reading the "Hercule Poirot" books would be in the least surprised that Agatha Christie was born under the sign of Virgo! 8/16/20 "Sanctuary" Silent One
