The Holiday Card

A staple of summertime correspondence, the humble postcard has been the only communication between those on vacation and those stuck at home. I explored the idea of its mundane purpose…

Seasick, Too

The ‘wish you were here’ seemed so insincere;

Holiday postcards haven’t changed a bit

Even though the photographs are more clear;

Herein lies the problems, there is no wit

On the back and ev’ryone seems so bored;

Lines like ‘Beautiful weather’ and ‘Good view’

Instantly turn the mind off. Had it poured

Down with rain, one could say, ‘Oh, this is new.”

As in the otherworld vacation time,

Yesteryear, it was sufficient to write

Couplets of some flowery verse in rhyme

And the people back home thought, ‘Outta sight.’

Returning to the identical place

Depresses the soul and makes one lose face.

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
