The Thirteenth Zodiac

Night of solstice On a hot and humid June The covenant of sisters Gazing at the signs from the stony mound On a night where comets fled the sky We are sisters We are Kindreds Sacred daughters of Ophiuchus Healers from the stars Healers of Aesculapius Snake charmers, doctors, herbalist The thirteenth zodiac from where we came The serpent staff we are led We came to heal man ©2016 Bonnie Jennings The Thirteenth Zodiac

Glad you think it's interesting... It is mythology and the healers/doctors staff comes from The Thirteenth Zodiac.. Odd, isn't it? Why that staff? If you read the story of Ophiuchus, then you will find how the serpent stuff came from that myth... I'm off to work in a few minutes.. Hope you stay in touch and chat later...
