Poem a Day, Challenge 13

Write an unlucky poem.

 

Ritual

 

 

Checked my horoscopes

Planets aligned for Virgo

Elements in place for Dragon

Read my palm

and tea leaves

searching for clues

Lit the candles

and the incense

to light and clear the way

Pocketed a rabbit’s foot,

four-leaf clover and amulet

for good fortune

Skipped three steps,

turned around, knocked on wood

for extra measure

Sat down with my blessed pen

and a blank page

But my Muse laughed,

and sang out as she left,

“Good luck with that.”
