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?

Our Lady of Guadalupe

A missive
should be a tome
weighty, heavy, ponderous.
But all he had
were roses
in his tilma.

24 syllables
Prompt: missive

Loteria--the Rose--May your life be filled with grace.

Joe Biden is Catholic and prays the rosary. Years ago he visited the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Roses were the sign that a peasant brought to his Bishop to prove his visions were real. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of the Americas. For Inauguration Day may she surely shower roses upon our new President.
