Strike me blue - that's great. Love all your watery references!

"Hey, hey" - says the blogger from across the pond. Just saying I enjoyed your Magpie contribution, and appreciate the blogger love over at my place. I look forward to further words using Tess's images.
I like the superposition of images in your poem, Lena and all of the mythological and astrologica allusions. Great Magpie!
Tone, cadence ... just delightful!
