Shadow Show

asks us to write a pantoum

(A Pantoum)

I am blotting out the sun
Image-making, clever.
Making shadows just for fun.
What an odd endeavour!

Image-making. Clever.
Loops and changing whirls.
What an odd endeavour!
See the lines and curls!

Loops and changing whirls;
Now the sky is greying.
See the lines and curls
Fading, merging, straying.

Now the sky is greying.
I am blotting-out the sun.
Fading, merging, straying,
Making shadows just for fun.



There are not too many fireworks when two Bulls are cast together!
In fact, I’m afraid it could be that you're in for heavy weather!
If you stay together for a while you'll find life very flat,
And, in later years, you may end up bovine and rather fat!
Your sex lives are exciting, as, at first, you're very keen,
But, as years go by, you think about the loves that might have been.
Sorry to sound depressing but you're similar to a fault,
You both would be much happier with a mate of a different sort.
You'll understand each other, because you'll think the same,
But both can be pedestrian, so thoughts will be, well, tame!
Both of you are stubborn and likely to bear a grudge
And arguments go on and on when neither side will budge.
You both are very loyal and hardworking, yes, indeed,
But something that's a contrast is what you really need.
You're at their best when sharing in a hobby or a chore,
But even this can soon become a plodding sort of bore!
Interests outside the home may see this union thrive,
Spread your wings, Taureans!
Be glad that you're alive!
