open time capsule
living Tarot archetypes
walk the earth again

A scifaiku is a haiku-inspired poetry form with a science fiction, fantasy, or horror theme. I've been trying my hand at them for many years and really enjoy the scifaiku group I participate in on yahoo. Given my love of The Tarot, it was from the start a foregone conclusion that it would show up in an occasional scifaiku that I write.

I was not thinking of any particular card when I wrote this scifaiku. I was thinking of the deck as a whole. Imagining the characters on them having once been living on our earth in some time-before-time. I chose Judgment to illustrate it because of those opening boxes and also because of one of it's meanings: rebirth. And I have that yahoo scifaiku group to thank for the inspiration because I wrote it as part of one of our scifaiku linked strings. (Each scifaiku added by a new writer is somehow, if only vaguely, connected to the previous.)

Interesting interpretation, even with how I used to see this card you words still fit.

To me the cards does show rebirth and are being called exist again, yes I can see how this works :)

Glad you can see why I chose XX for this Tarot scifaiku, scuffyhippo. I thought I might scan in a picture of all the Majors, but could not find a good one in my books quickly enough. So, there went that idea! LOL!

I haven't addressed Judgment here at length yet in my usual fashion, with quirky meanings and such. Hope you happen to make a visit when I do.
