A strong Leo AND fair Capricorn
THE SITUATION could very WELL BE blessed
But his name was not THE one that was worn
She too was TRYING TO FIND A WAY
To PASS off a MISSING designation.
IT was, ALBEIT, UPSETTING to portray
Another, this would BE the foundation.
Had THE TELEPHONE been BUSY THE way may HAVE PASSED.
MIND YOU, this tale would have ended WITH SEPARATION.
Their love was true despite the lies they amassed
AND to SEE each PARTNER so lost IN A fabrication
Starting a relationship based on lies, to SOME it would DISTURB
BUT if YOU COULD see them as I do TONIGHT, their love is SO superb.
Today’s Poetry Prompt from The Pencil Sharpener: Read your horoscope (or the horoscope of a loved one). Then write a draft of a poem. Circle every third word of the horoscope and write a poem around it.
I followed the lead of Julie T. Ewald and took it a step further. I looked up my husband’s and my horoscope and created a Shakespearean sonnet in iambic pentameter about our first meeting. Without the words to put into it, I am sure it would have sounded much less Shakespearean and much more Seussian. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. It felt like piecing a puzzle together.
Here are the words I had to work with, alphabetized for ease:
a, a, a, albeit, and, and, be, be, busy, but, could, disturb, find, have, in, it, mind, missing, partner, pass, passed, see, separation, situation, so, some, suggest, telephone, the , the, the, the, to, to, tonight, trying, upsetting, way, well, will, with, you, you
