Shuffling along the deck, today’s Carpe Diem Tarot Haiku prompt is The Emperor (IV).
It is interesting that The Emperor card should be aligned with god, as nothing is more certain than the end of an Emperor’s reign once the people find truth in their own voices.
Whilst the story of Emperors is oft’ repeated through history with a predictable ending, today at least I have chosen to make the end a happy one…
the emperor rules
the raped and pillaged, whilst
they find their voices
how long will it be
before the emperor sees
himself as a god
sat on throne
very sore seat, but
Thank you for visiting my domain today. I hope that you leave with peace in mind, a warm heart and… happy feet.
Smiles, love and laughter
