Magpie Tales - Week 15


I am Pisces, but not.
I was due on
February 29
but decided to
take my time.
Still a fish,
but really?
My mirror
doesn’t show
depth
imagination
overcautious
unselfish
gullible
(well, that one’s true).
I wonder if my
non-appearance
on that lost day
made me lose my way.
Or if this fish-ness
is just so much hooey.

  5. What difference does one day make in the grand scheme of things? Then again, what if I missed being an Aquarius?

  6. Hello, Pisces. Sometimes I wonder how much of these things are shaped in our minds, living up to expectations. But me, I am SO SO LEO.

  8. Cute poem, Bug! So when is your real birth date? Is it still in the Pieces time frame? Love the word "hooey". They're always using it in all the old 40s movies.

  9. March 3 - I was only 3 days late, so, yes, still a Pisces. I wonder if I should have said Leap Day instead of February 29th?

  14. I am a Picies through and through, although I've never heard gullible as a descriptor. I'll have to take your word on that (ha).

  15. Loved the first line, it was the perfect intro, to set the tone.

    PS: For what it's worth, I'm a Capricorn. :)
