[Poem a Day] “Fortune, Without Us”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.
There was a time in my life where I was really into Tarot.

I owned no less than three different decks, and knew the cards inside and out. Though I never really fully subscribed in the idea that they had any kind of handle on what anyone’s future held, I liked to use them as prompts for meditation – whatever cards I pulled for the day would be things to think about for the past, present, and future. It was actually a nice little tool for self-reflection.

While I don’t really have my head in the cards these days the same way I did back then, I still find myself thinking about the odd one here and there sometimes. The Fortune card is one of them – something that indicates the turning of the wheel of fate – the cycles of life and destiny. Today, I’m kind of thinking of it in the context of time. Something that turns not for us, per se, but turns while we’re around – and will keep turning past us.
