ONE WAY TO UNDERSTAND THE FOOL CARD (Poem)
I wrote the below little poem many years ago when I was still going to poetry readings. One rainy Saturday afternoon, it was my delight to hear an intriguing man, new to the poetry scene, read his powerful poetry.
She had forgotten how it felt
to be drawn so to a man.
To stand breathless
at the edge of a cliff,
awed by the unexpected view,
with a voice whispering
in the back of her mind:
* * * *
By the way, I did not "jump." Not doing anything may have been even more of a "Foolish" risk than jumping, as I never did get to know that poet.
P.S. I'll address The Fool card in my usual fashion in a future post.

‘til next time, keep taking (sensible :-D) risks, and enjoying The Tarot,
