Dawning * (tanka)

nights bright stars arise~

Jupiter Mars have aligned~

Aquarius wakes~

pours water for the Gods~

Zeus’ eyes sip in his beauty


*Note: Aquarius is the 11th sigh of the zodiac, however it was one of the first constellations recognized by early astronomers. As with most sighs there is a Greek mythology behind this one and also several other cultures see the link below. As always a song for your enjoyment (the video is visually beautiful as well). πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.

  2. These few words are lovely in their universal beauty; I love how both planets and gods to weave together in this writing. “Zeus’ eyes sip in his beauty” is a fitting and stunning end!
