Months to go

Months to go and it’s starting to show

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.
