Months to go
And it will never be over again until
It starts itself; its longest years within
The vas, eternal pull. Against the walls
Of a protected cage, it bangs and bangs
It seeks to be free – unkowing where it’s
Going, like a free marble hit by a rock
Or a fish regurgitating the worms by
The fishermen. It cannot wait to grasp
The rays that burn and blacken to till
The barren earth that mothers us all.
THIS IS THE TAROT CHALLENGE, a 78-day writing challenge where everyday I pick out a random card from my tarot deck and write something about, against, inspired by, based on the card by the day’s end. The works can range from poetry to fiction to drama. When the card is from the major arcana, the title of the work should be the card name. When the card is from the minor arcana, the title can be different but the card drawn should be revealed at the end.
