These past weeks I have been slowly toiling away at creating another project, The Poetic Arcanum. It is a collection of 22 small and pithy poems pertaining to each of the Major Arcana of the Tarot de Marseille. Each of the poems aim at specifically answering the question, Who are you, with each of the Majors. They were created by shuffling the entire pack of cards, excepting the Major in question, and laying down three cards in response.
Of course, I add that this is my own creation, extracted from my own reading of the three cards in relation to the Major they are interacting with. The poems are short, free-form, and expressive. Below is a preview:
I hope you enjoy what I have lovingly created, and also feel free to share as well.
