Having noticed some of Helen’s wonderful haiku poems on her blog _Writing My Words_, I approached her about doing something similar based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot.
Here are the first five cards. We took turns choosing the deck and writing the alternate lines. We did allow the person writing the first line to share that (plus an image of the card) with the other person, but we did not see each other's second and third lines until after we wrote them.
I hope you enjoy these Tarot-inspired haikus.
