THE CHARIOT (Tarot card from a deck) & DREAM CHARIOTEER (non-dream tanka) by Roswila


dream charioteer
vulnerable to star winds
trusting in your steeds
gather your fleeting harvest
and lay it at dawn's gold feet

[non-dream tanka written 4-9-14 about The Chariot card in The Golden Tarot of Klimt, which is the image above. Unfortunately, the highlighting lovely gold stamping on this card (and all the deck's cards) cannot show in the scan. This deck is the newest in my collection. It has always intriguing and sometimes challenging illustrations.]

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
