Land And Wind
My star sign, grounded in the now
Flexes with the wind like a bough.
Its elemental destiny
Bound together with the lightness
Of the salty breeze from the west,
Where the sandy shore meets the sea.
I see beauty in our signs.
Mine in a service that refines
The atmosphere that you exhale.
Your sign aerates the clay-like soil
Of my practical side, a foil.
Opposites attracted as well.
I can now tell just from your touch
How such star-crossed lovers prevail.
Author's Notes:
This was for a contest on  Blue Rew will be leaving the site and she wanted poems as a farewell using two themes.  One is Fire and Water, the other is Earth and Air.  I chose Earth and Air because Virgo is an Earth sign.
I used the form Jeffreys Sonnet, which can be found on
Report Offensive Poem.

I think you chose the harder of the least for me it would have been.

Nicely done and an enjoyable read.
