Holly Ramey is hosting a tarot challenge on Instagram for the month of April. I am happily participating. My theme for the challenge is to craft the text of each post as a poem, in honor of April being National Poetry Month. Check out Holly's website here, and see the tarot challenge on instagram here, or with the hashtag #hdrtarotchallenge. There is still time to join the challenge if you are inspired to do so.

Here is my post from the first day of the challenge: 

How is The Fool present in my life?

 

 The Empress from The Lumina Tarot.

The Empress from The Lumina Tarot.

coming back

to bloom

forgetting the fallow

it's passed

embrace effortlessness 

new growth

dying 

back far off

fool hearty

trust & vigor

 

We watched the movie Forrest Gump today. Forrest embraces The Fool archetype. His curiosity, his hope, the way he is "in the moment" is so refreshing. It's arresting in its beauty.

 

embrace

forget

bloom again

held and holding

here and everywhere 

only cage

is of our choosing

my braids are long 

fraying at the ends

will you still like me

this way

mud on my face

twisted and crying

nowhere and everywhere
