There Were Two

The wooden planks creak as I hear passersby walk.

The night is dark and humid

I sit inside on a hard stool waiting.

My new love sits outside and listens as the men tease him about being away and still his love sits without him

I take a smoke from one of the men and inhale the aroma and sweetness.The cloud of smoke wafts outside to where my love is sitting.

I know he has walked and acquired his sweetness

I look out and inquire why he is alone and has not asked me to join him

He stands up and motions for me too come

He takes my hand
It feels so thin and as I walk behind him to sit
I notice his lanky frame

He passes his lit pipe to me
I watch him as I inhale

He seems distant yet close

He says you know there were two

I want to ask what happened but the words do not form
in a voice that can be heard

I speak with him and say that sometimes each of us needs to be alone

I let him know that I felt he wanted that

Too be alone in his thoughts

He took me in his arms and I felt strength in me from him

He said

“I am alone too much,I long too smell your hair and take in the warmth of your essence”

He said

“I feel strength from you when you are in my arms”

Moon~ in Gemini

I love Full Moons

Moon in Gemini
A Moon in Gemini modifies your Sun sign in this way:

The Bright Side of Gemini Moon-You are more versatile, witty, charming, lively, amusing.

The Dark Side of Gemini Moon-You are more disorganized, inconsistent, superficial, cunning, manipulative.

You do not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and you are often unaware of your own or other people’s deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder you and make you very uncomfortable. You would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but you tend to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe your own or others’ inner depths.

You avoid heavy, demanding emotional involvements and are wary of making personal commitments.

You need plenty of mental stimulation and you feel close to people with whom you can share thoughts and mental interests. Conversation is very important to you. The strong, silent type of partner is not for you.

In the lively, restless sign of Gemini the Moon’s sway becomes more mutable and erratic. This does not make all Moon-in-Gemini children flighty, frivolous and frenetic, but almost always indicates an active mind, an imaginative and creative personality, and someone who is inclined toward intellectual pursuits. If you have a Moon in this position you are extraordinarily quick to receive sensory impressions from the outside world. You rapidly sift through information and make your judgments. Because Gemini is a mental sign, your snap decisions tend to be more intellectual than emotional. It is not that you are unfeeling, simply that your immediate reaction to stimuli is on a mental plane.

You are a fast learner, and if you choose you can be an excellent critic for you have an ability both to analyze and to verbalize. A Moon in the communicative sign of Gemini inclines you toward loquaciousness and endows you with great personal charm. You have enchanting vivacity that draws others to you. Conversations with you tend to run off on unexpected tangents and take sudden turns and reverses. At heart, a lunar Gemini is essentially restless and needs constant stimulation. If forced to be indoors or solitary or inactive you are unhappy and should try to set aside a part of the day to get out and be among people.

A Moon in Gemini makes you extremely impressionable to the changing scene around you. Skill in speaking and writing predisposes many lunar Geminis to become writers, teachers and journalists. John Keats, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, and George Bernard Shaw are only a few famous Moon-Geminis of the past.

As a Moon in Gemini person you tend to dissect your own feelings and emotions to analyze why you are this way or behave that way. The most famous lunar Gemini who possessed this quality is Sigmund Freud. Freud also had his Sun in Taurus and Scorpio Rising, giving him extraordinary tenacity and depth of insight.

You are quick-witted and vibrant, and when you come across a new fact or a different way of looking at something, you are likely to undergo a change of mind. One can’t count on your firm convictions, but your openness to life makes you a fascinating companion.

In emotional relationships, lunar Geminis display a certain free spirit. You resent being subject to the whims and vagaries of other people’s emotions, and struggle to retain independence. The Moon-in-Gemini personality is high-strung. You have a streak of discontent, which sometimes shows up as irritability and snappishness. On the other hand, you are amusing, witty and have a wonderful sense of humor. When you are in the right mood you are a delight to be with.

You thrive on travel, change, and meeting different kinds of personalities. In business, your best qualities are versatility and a winning way with people. You perform very well when linked in partnership with someone practical and hardheaded. Having to make a final decision is torture for you; you need a strong, decisive partner.

No matter what your Sun sign may be, the Gemini-Moon qualities of versatility and intellectualism can be discerned in your personality. If your Sun is in an air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), your keen intelligence is accentuated by a Gemini Moon and you have a superb gift of self-expression. If your Sun is in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), your emotional nature is sharpened by the Gemini-Moon mental acumen; you have strong creative instincts and a talent for research. If your Sun is in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), a Gemini Moon gives you quickness of mind that you can use in a practical way in combination with your Sun sign persistent. If your Sun is in a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), a Gemini Moon bestows high mentality which combined with your passion and adventurism indicates superior leadership ability.

Whatever you Sun sign, a Moon in Gemini imparts a witty intellect, an independent spirit, and an imaginative sparkle to your personality.
