The Fool – NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 27


on the fringe
boundaries, unimpinged,
the alchemist follows his bliss

a dapper fool who peers into the dark abyss,
dares the fates and leaps on wings of faith; does all this
innocence intact, not jaded

safety’s overrated


NaPoWriMo 2017 Day 27 – Prompt: pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.

I found a site where I could pick a random card for more of a challenge and, as the cards would have it, I chose the Fool. (Why am I not surprised!) I also decided to try a challenging new poetry form (I’m crazy that way 😉) called a Trois-par-Huit (Three-by-Eight or Octa-Tri for short) by Lorraine M. Kanter.
