Inspired by the Tarot: Haiku, Part 2

I am pleased to share the next installment in the “Great Haiku Experiment” undertaken by Helen and me. We took turns choosing the deck for each card, then wrote alternate lines of the Haiku. To read the first set of poems, click HERE.

THE HIEROPHANT

In darkness, faith shines, 
a comfort in times of need.
We walk towards the light.

THE LOVERS

Love, your choice to make.
Look both ways before you choose.
Life can change for you.

THE CHARIOT

On the road of life,
draw on courage and your strength.
Steer a steady course.

Unfinished deck by Helen Howell

STRENGTH

Face the lion within,
your touch gentle, your voice firm
a quiet strength prevails

THE HERMIT

Hold high the lantern.
The path to enlightenment 
is clear to you now.

  3. I love this! Can hardly believe these were written in partnership, they work so seemlessly. Beautiful. I especially adored the Lovers haiku - funny and excellent match to the card :D

  4. Hi Sharyn, I'm afraid not, Tarot Bella was started some years ago and now I've lost the momentum for it.
