How to Read the Tarot

Begin by brewing a cup of tea,
a nervine, lemon balm or chamomile,
this is after all, your future.
A reading at the dark of the moon is best,
before the night creatures crawl
and bad humours fill the air.
Pick a circular deck, with a fairy-tale motif,
and no reversals.
Hold a question in your heart,
shuffle the cards and place them on the table.
Choose only two.
Like the ancient Israelites,
these are your seer stones, Urim and Thumimm,
black and white, yes or no.
Isn't that all you were asking?

Mary, Mother of All

I was an unwed mother, refugee, brown skinned Jew.
The ancient Church Fathers crowned me Queen of Heaven.

Skyward

My wings are made of rainbows.
I soar above
dun colored mud fields
of virus, of politics
avoiding conflict's sting.
I delight
in wind, rain, stars, and clouds.
I leave, in my wake
colorful contrails.

Lodestar

My lodestar
is small
acts of kindness
navigating a path
of scattered poems
brought by wind storms.

He said, "Your aura is cesious".
I whispered,
"It smells like rain
in blue grey skies
dark enough
to sin by."

talking heads
heralded a paradigm shift.
Today, we know
it went backwards.

All prayers ring true in a store front church.
The pews littered with homeless absent society's glue.
The vanquished still bleed, sorrow piercing their hearts.
