30 Day Writing Challenge (Day 17)

Day 17: Write about your zodiac sign and whether or not it fits you.


Cancer brings a little piece of home
wherever she goes
so that she knows that she can never get lost.

My home is in a pendant
carved with “wunjo,” with “joy
carved with a promise
to bring joy to the lives of those I love.

Cancer knows that the ocean
pulls the sand away, chews up rocks and spits them out.
It’s best not to get attached to anything
that she cannot pull close to her chest
till the storm passes.

I want to help children find autonomy, teenagers find themselves, and adults find compassion through the written word. I hold a B.A. in Creative writing and a dream of seeing my name on a book cover one day.
