Carpe Diem is having a ‘tarot month’ and inviting haiku on related words. Today’s word is The Emperor, which is apparently one of the cards.
This is a double challenge for me as I know nothing about tarot. I googled it and the Wikipedia article was most interesting.
I also went through the haiku listed on the website and found an amazing array of interpretations of the word, many of them illustrated. I strongly recommend them.
Since I’m not one to keep quiet just because I don’t know anything about the subject, I’ve done a contribution to today’s poems:
An old tarot card:
the Emperor. Chance deals it
from a tattered pack.
