The Fool

On the precipice
Dancing dog
Bids you jump and fly

In my world this new
Chance here seems
Both wonderous, dread

The Magician

Purest alchemy
As above
So below, is known

Can I take this chance
Weave it now
With experience?

The High Priestess

Isis mystery
Wisdom school
Initiate bows

My intuition
Is sharp, blade
Of pure thought

The Empress

Sacred motherhood
Pregnant with
Possibility

Fashion now my life
Abundant
Growth comes from the new

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    interesting.. do you engage in tarot card reading?

    • Thanks, yes, I do as a hobby. I find it a great meditative and reflective tool. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • howanxious says:

        wow.. it all seems so interesting.. πŸ™‚
        but I’m a little strange about it because I’ve watched a movie in which a woman could see true horrors in tarot cards.. πŸ˜€

      • I don’t see horrors when I read…I think movies are overly dramatic on such things…even the ‘death’ card isn’t about death, it’s about change and choice. I just find it a good way to reflect on things, then you make your own choices and life continues ….not that big a deal, just interesting. πŸ™‚

      • howanxious says:

        yes, that is what I think as well… they are quite intriguing and mystical.. πŸ™‚
        you have made me interested.. I’d look forward to further parts of The Progress of the Tarot..

    As a “tarot freak”, I enjoyed this poem a lot! πŸ™‚ Very interesting and creative.

    I was going to say that two of the cards were Rider Waite, but then I noticed the captions, which stole my thunder really.
