NaPoWriMo Day 23 ~ Pick a Card

The prompt for NaPoWriMo today was to take any kind of cards that you wanted to and pick a random card. After the card was drawn, you were to free write for five minutes and make a poem based upon your free writing. I chose a card from one of my tarot decks…for this I used the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert. I only used the major arcana for this exercise and below is a picture of the Awakening card, which is the one I chose.



Awaken the priest or priestess within
Discover traces of divinity sprinkled everywhere
As magical as fairy dust, as tangible as the soil
Breathe deeply and fly above the small details that bind
Spread your wings and soar over the big picture
Just as air, earth, and water are all touched by the fire of the sun
So are we all connected to everything
There is no such thing as alone in this Universe
Connect and tap in…the signs are all around us
Sometimes we have to walk into the dark spaces to reach the next place
No matter how deep the darkness is, there is always a flickering flame to guide
You do not even need to open your eyes, for this flame is inside of everything
Awaken the priest or priestess within
