FOUR HAIKU BASED ON TAROT DREAMS
for The Second Aeclectic Tarot Community Project
the ace of cups
in three different decks
I see the six of wands twice
but it's blank
each time the door opens
new Tarot art
the page of wands looks in through
my glass terrace door
It seems I'm getting a little breather from The Taiga Tarot designs. In the meantime, I thought I'd share the above four Tarot dream-based haiku. When going through my dream haiku the other day I noted the first three above -- dreamed between October 2006 and March 2007 -- show a general progression with respect to The Taiga Tarot (among other concerns in my life). From growing potential, to false starts, to where I am now: with the first few designs manifested and more "floors" yet to be visited on the "elevating" ride.
The dream on which the fourth is based I had this Tuesday, but it was speaking clearly to concerns other than The Taiga Tarot. Though at first, of course, I did attempt to find a new Taiga Tarot design in it. :-) Aspects of this fourth intense, brief dream's import (combined with the impact of a subsequent very vaguely Tarot dream) are still floating into consciousness. What pieces have arrived so far are very helpful and encouraging.
A fellow poet once said to me with a puzzled expression "But using Tarot with your dreams is like dreaming about a dream!" I agreed with that, to her further bemusement. To which I'll now add "And dreaming about Tarot is like doing a Tarot reading."
