It's always seemed odd to me that I don't dream more directly about The Tarot, given how much I relate to it in my waking life. (See my tarot blog, link at bottom of this post.) I say "directly" because many of my dream situations do echo the Tarot, it's just that I rarely recall an actual image from it. However, I have had some clear Tarot images in dreams and below are the few haiku I've written based on them.

Gordian knot

the Tarot layout
is strong both up and down
how to decide

Empress or Papess
the Tarot card woman
won't be pinned down

["Papess" is another name for The High Priestess; there's a legend that there was once a female pope, Pope Joan/John.]

* * * *

overwhelmed by
the Seven of Pentacles
her own creation

* * * *

the Three of Cups
pops from the new deck
reframe your thinking

* * * *

the woman floats:
a fire Tarot card
with so much water!

[In most decks, a card can be considered either fire/wands, water/cups, air/swords, or earth/pentacles]

* * * *

makeover magic
which of the three Tarot cards
will she be?

[for an exploration of this last dream with the actual cards, see post in this blog called "Dream of Three Tarot Cards."]

Resource:, current issue of a literary magazine in which I have a few poems; although my last name is mis-spelled (I'm awaiting its correction) I still recommend this nice ezine. :-)

‘til next time, keep dreaming,
