Poetry Challenge – Day 28

Welcome to Day 28 of my 30-Day Poetry Challenge!

Comment on today’s poem to win a copy of my poetry book, “(After) Confession… I’m giving away a copy every day. Scroll down below the poem for more details about this Poetry Challenge.

No winner today. I think we are all feeling fatigue as Poetry Month nears the end, you the readers/commenters, and I certainly am as the writer! I’ll do a raffle tomorrow, or not, no big deal. I’ve been so appreciative of how this project has gone so far. 

Now onto today’s poem. Don’t forget to comment, and check back tomorrow to see if you’ve won!

I could not resist the NaPoWriMo prompt for today: my daughter Gennie has had such a passion for the Rider-Waite Tarot for years, does amazing readings, has done a huge research project on it, and even made a really cool animation of the cards (scroll down below the poem to see it– it’s short and amazing). 

The prompt: pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.
