When I was asked by Joe at Iamforchange if I would like to co-write some poetry with 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
Wishes unfulfilled now past
Appearing wealthy, comfort as the time draws near
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!
Thanks! There are pics of some of my other “kids” on Haiku By Ku…
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!
Thank you! It’s nice to get feedback!
Awesome post! 🙂 Thank you for creating with me! You are Awesome and quite fun to create with!
great symphony – reminds me of the indian classical musical tradition in which the instrumentalist has to make the percussionist synch with him – called jugal bandhi – first the instrunet produces a rhythm next the tabla matches it and then both do it together – no written notations to follow – extempore!
Thanks and you’re welcome!
Awesome collaborative work, Julianne. It does flow, imagine the making of thoughts in sync with each other.
Thanks, though it was done via email, it was very easy. Namaste!
