The High Priestess Times Four

This is the third entry in a series in which I share four versions of a particular Major Arcana card, and write a poem that takes us through all four versions. (Click _HERE_ to read my post about The Magician.)

To simplify the process for myself, I am going to go in alphabetic order by deck. In this post, representing The High Priestess, we have the:
  • Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot by Karen Mahony (Magic Realist Press)
  • Beginner’s Tarot by Kathleen McCormack (New Burlington Books)
  • Black Cats Tarot by Maria Kurara (Lo Scarabeo)
  • Bruegel Tarot by Guido Zibordi Marchesi (Lo Scarabeo).

The Voice of the High Priestess
by Zanna Starr

The voice of the High Priestess is quiet,
A cat tip-toeing across a velvet carpet.
The voice of the High Priestess is firm,
A rock with its face hardened by the sun.
The voice of the High Priestess is Mystery,
Moonlight flowing through the night of the mind.
The voice of the High Priestess comes from within,
Using words we already know
In ways we have yet to learn.
