Haiku Carpe Diem #184, Tarot

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is the first in a series on Tarot.

Today the deal gives you a tarot cascade…


dealing tarot cards
an historical past time
not a future tense

not a future tense
tarot cards can only show
a suit, not suitor

a suit, not suitor
held within your hand you find
ancient game playing

ancient game playing
many a heart’s been trumped
dealing tarot cards

With a flurry if not a flush,  I bid you farewell for another day.  Though my cascade may not attract a full-house, I welcome you, my friend, to the fold with all my , , ♣ and ♠s.

Smiles, love and laughter

    A very nice series of haiku here. They really flow.


  2. Rosemarie says:

    I think tarot as a subject is difficult, and you have written a very nice haiku cascade that works. Thanks also for the like on my Carmen flight of fancy.

    I think you dealt yourself a royal flush today! 🙂 Not in the Cards


  4. Beautifully composed cascading haiku on Tarot … it floats like a river.


  5. Maggie Grace says:

    Your skepticism is showing ;-O I took it to a Jungian level. So like me. *snork* Nicely done with your reality and tenses.


  6. a very fine cascade, with some cleverness ‘to boot’

    Wonderful collection, JRB! While reading I felt like different cards were passing through my hands without even noticing. 🙂
