Springtime Poems

When I was asked by Joe at Iamforchange if I                                                                     would like to co-write some poetry withblue-flowers-wallpaper him, I thought it would be a fun, experimental, and very creative writing project, especially since I haven’t written much poetry in the last couple of years. We decided to compose the following poems inspired and intuited from the Tarot. For the first poem, we each drew a three card spread and alternated lines. For the second poem, we each drew a Celtic Cross spread and alternated lines. Here are the results:

#1 New Beginnings

The chains that had bound no longer found

But the process of grief still lingers

A good message brings courage to follow dreams

For the seed has been planted for the heart to heal

Balance and control confidence and success they bear

And the Alchemy brings forth what previously wasn’t there

#2 Movement and Growth

The time has come to be reborn and transform
Shining bright all will be well like summer born
Winter’s wounds weathered standing firm
Change is in the wind an adventure yearned
All will flow smoothly like an ocean breeze
Treasure arrives on the journey to destiny
Through the distant towers the sun rises anew
The wheel turns, events fortunate arise
 
Foundations of truth and justice firmly set
Break clean and begin anew say yes
Wishes unfulfilled now past
New love comes fast
The spinning wheel of karma is in play
Fame and fortune come your way
 
But slow the mind to move swiftly forward
The world is yours, around the corner freedom waits
By others your hard work will be appreciated 
Someone important into your life soon arrives
Move forward in hope, but not fear,
Appearing wealthy, comfort as the time draws near
In the end you see the sun shining brightly, but it always has
Raw power and strength brought to bear, setbacks overcome

Thanks to Joe for this collaborative effort! Though we did not see or know each others cards, it flowed smoothly like the ocean breeze. Happy Spring to All!

  1. These pieces both have a deep quality to them – mystical in nature and a lovely call and response/interplay between the two of you. They are very inspirational and positive in their nature. Very good, you have both made great art here, different in form to each other but both pieces compliment each other very nicely. I’m glad you both teamed up and I got to see it – excellent work!
